British Retail Consortium
The Brand Reputation Compliance Global Standards (BRC) is a food safety standard recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative. It promotes a culture of food safety as it requires a more comprehensive environmental monitoring program that reflects individual risks to product safety.
Quantum Food Solutions 's food safety consulting services help your food company reach BRC certification. Through inspections, we help you keep these standards while identifying the strengths and weaknesses of your processing line using scientific tools and engineering principles. It's just one of our many certification consultancy services that help you make more money.
What Is BRC?
The BRC Food Safety Standard was developed by the British Retail Consortium and published in 1998. The most current edition (Issue 8) was released in August 2018. It seeks to provide a framework for food processors that is geared to producing safe food while simultaneously managing product quality in a way that meets customers’ specifications.
BRC has set benchmarks for Food Safety, Packaging and Packaging Materials, Storage and Distribution, Consumer Products, Agents and Brokers, Retail, and Gluten-Free products, helping food processors manufacturing practice, and help assure customers that your products are safe, legal and of high quality.
On top of food safety, it also requires the development of systems to enhance security and food defense to protect product authenticity (e.g., food fraud). Quantum Food Solutions can certify your operation's compliance with the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety and solidify your commitment to proficiency and excellence.
The BRC Standard, as with other globally recognized food safety schemes, was derived from codes of practice outlined by the World Health Organization (WHO). To receive certification, a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) food safety plan must be in place.
