BRC Food Certification

BRC Food Certification

Compass Assurance Services through its partnership with KIWA provides efficient and competent BRC certification for businesses small and large.

BRC Food Certification is carried out against the BRC Food Safety Standard, a leading global brand recognised by thousands of customers worldwide.

KIWA is proudly a BRC 5 star rated Certification Body, with green status for all 5 grading criteria.

It has certificated over 18,000 suppliers in over 100 countries around the globe. It was also the first Food Safety Standard to be benchmarked by the GFSI. The BRC food certification standard is designed to protect the consumer, and ensure that manufacturers and suppliers involved in the food chain meet their obligations.

BRC Global Food certification can be used by any food processing operation where open food is handled, processed or packed. This could be from primary products such as fresh produce, pack houses and slaughterhouses through to processed foods, canneries and ready to eat products.

Whether you’re an established global supplier or based in an emerging market, the BRC Food standard will ensure your customers have confidence in your food safety program and supply chain management. What’s more, by improving food safety, the Standard will also help you;

  • Reduce Waste,
  • Complaints,
  • Recalls and
  • Rejected Products.

You can also use your certification as a marketing tool by displaying the BRC food Standard logo on your publicity materials, stationery and website. And your business will appear on the BRC Directory too, giving you further recognition.

Each manufacturer or supplier is assessed by an accredited certification body like Kiwa, against specific safety, operational and quality criteria.  It gives food retailers, working within a highly competitive marketplace, legal, technical and financial advantages. Achieving the BRC food standard demonstrates to customers that the producer has robust product safety systems in place to allow for confidence in the supply of a safe, legal and good quality product.

We also certify BRC Storage and Distribution, BRC Agents and Brokers and BRC Packaging schemes.

Compliance with this standard helps ensure that your products are safe, legal and of a quality that means your customers make repeat purchases.
