For the third consecutive year, Weedon Corrugated Products of Audenshaw, Manchester, has achieved the BRC (British Retail Consortium) Global Standard (BRCGS) for Packaging Materials, passing its external audit at level AA.
This means that the company’s corrugated manufacturing processes are certified as safe and hygienic for retail and non-direct food applications. Weedon Corrugated Products’ customers can therefore be 100% confident that the company’s corrugated packaging for the food and drink markets is safe, legal and of high quality.
BRCGS is globally recognised across both food and non-food categories and operates the most rigorous third party certification scheme of its type, helping to build confidence in the supply chain. For nearly 25 years this Global Standard has set the benchmark for good manufacturing practice. Adopted by over 22,000 sites in more than 130 countries, its standard is accepted by 70% of the top 10 global retailers and 50% of the top 25 manufacturers.
Production Director, Paul McCormack, commented:
“At Weedon Corrugated Products we are committed to providing a top quality service to our customers. BRC provides the industry-wide benchmark for food safety and quality and the standard is fast becoming a minimum requirement for major retailers.
“This accreditation relies on the efficiency of our systems and processes and our attention to detail. Level ‘AA’ is the pinnacle for us to aim at to support our customers in food manufacture and processing and we are therefore delighted that our high standards and the hard work of all our staff have been recognised in this way.”
