BRC GS for Food Safety

Demand for food safety is growing. Consumers and authorities increasingly demand that the food we eat should offer high levels of quality and security. If a problem occurs, the source of error needs to be found quickly and the problem rectified. Demands are typically directed to the retail trade first, but responsibility spreads through the entire food chain to include food producers, primary producers and transporters.

The BRC GS (British Retail Consortium Global Standard) was published by the union of British supermarket chains, the BRC. It requires documented approval to ensure food quality and safety.

Its an advanced level to HACCP, ISO 22000 or FSSC 22000

If you are already certified for any of the above standards, your organisation should think on moving to the next level which is BRC certification
