Our two production sites at the above-mentioned locations and warehouses are subject to an annual audit in which the quality standard and food safety are assessed. In the course of this audit, which is conducted in accordance with the BRC Packaging standard, all internal quality processes were reviewed, and we are delighted to announce we have had another successful outcome this year.

On another note, we have opted not to extend the trial of the FSSC 22000 quality standard this year, since we have reached the conclusion that this standard has failed to gain the popularity expected for it in the packaging industry. Similarly, a recent change in the FSSC 22000 also makes the standard less compatible with our business operations, and with BRC Packaging and FSSC 22000 largely overlapping, it simply doesn’t make sense to maintain both quality systems.

We see the maintenance of AA status for the GFSI-approved BRC Packaging standard at both our locations as the most significant achievement of a dedicated team. All year round, this team has been working with everybody on the shop floor to standardise the hygiene and monitoring of every bucket that leaves our factory.
