BRC Consultancy

We specialise in working with small, growing businesses looking to achieve certification. We credit our success to our ability to apply a pragmatic approach to each client. By focusing on developing tailored solutions for our clients, we are able to provide optimised solutions that minimise expense. This can be crucial for small companies looking to achieve certification on a budget.

Gap Analysis

To start the route to certification, one of our consultants will conduct an on-site gap analysis to assess the existing level of compliance. A gap analysis will assess:

• what food safety systems are currently in place

• how current systems compare to requirements of the standard

• paperwork systems

• fabrication

• personnel requirements

The results of a gap analysis will highlight any areas of weakness and expose what will need to be improved or introduced in order to achieve certification. If you then choose to enlist our services to assist with the set up and implementation of processes, we will deduct the cost of gap analysis from the overall fee.

Throughout the process to certification, we are always on hand to assist in any way possible to ensure a smooth transition to BRC certification. Our highly qualified consultants are available across the UK.

BRC Audit

For companies already in the process of BRC certification, we offer a pre-audit service to examine a premise before the official audit day. With the majority of BRC standards operating on a grading system, it is now more important than ever that businesses achieve top grades for BRC on audit day. Our pre-audit service offers the expertise of a BRC qualified auditor to come out to site and conduct a full audit. This allows businesses to expose any non-conformities that may result in a low grading before audit day. A pre-audit exercise provides businesses with invaluable insight and additional time to correct any areas in need of improvement and ensure top grades on audit day. Find our more about our range of auditing services.
