BRC Certified Production Plant

When a production plant is BRC / FSSC 22000 certified, all ingredients are controlled for food safety and quality, including legal requirements such as FDA and EU 10/2011. In addition to that, all suppliers are assessed and approved by our Quality and R&D teams. Hazard and risk analysis at critical control points (HACCP) are made and extensive production and process controls are introduced. Production staff are trained to ensure that they are well equipped and have the correct mindset. All processes and controls are audited periodically, with defined actions and improvements being managed under a corrective action management program.

A BRC-IOP Certified plant represents high qualities in production, environment and process controls and safe packaging solutions for our customers.
