Netpak Packaging of Anjou, Que., has obtained its sixth consecutive BRC Grade AA certification by the Global Food Standard Initiative (GFSI).
Setting the standard in the food industry, the British Retail Consortium (BRC) is a globally recognized organization that establishes a series of standards to help companies be compliant with food safety laws at all levels of the supply chain. Many food manufacturers are now requiring their suppliers to implement rigorous quality control programs and obtain highly recognized certifications.
The BRC Global Standards programme is approved by the GFSI for certification in the food and beverage industry.
“To be accredited with the highly coveted BRC certification is among one of our many industry achievements and a true testament to our outstanding performance and quality,” according to a statement from the company, explaining that six years ago, Netpak was among the first in North America to successfully complete the BRC auditing process.
The yearly performance reviews assess the various key components of the production process including safety and hygiene systems, as well as control on the manufacturing processes and production line. Risk management systems must be implemented, as well as a rigorous quality control process and upstream and downstream product traceability processes in order to successfully complete the audit.
“Obtaining the BRC designation is of the utmost importance for Netpak. Our customers can rest assured that our facility and packaging solutions meet and achieve the highest levels of the GFSI-recognized certifications for food safety, all while fulfilling their legal obligations and providing protection for the end consumer,” Netpak says.
