The BRCGS standard for food safety takes a common sense, risk-based approach, providing organizations with a clear path towards achieving certification. Over 25,000 sites in more than 130 different countries have risen to the challenge of implementing industry best practice food safety certification making this an industry benchmark standard for food safety.
Supported by customers
Many retailers, food service companies and major food manufacturers around the world support the BRCGS Global Standard for Food Safety as a core food safety standard and accept certification to this standard as a pre-requisite to their supplier approval process.
The standard has been developed by a multi-stakeholder group representing organizations from a wide range of food industry sectors. It’s based on CODEX HACCP and incorporates food safety management systems and internationally accepted best manufacturing practices to ensure product safety and quality.
Industry recognized and accepted certification reduces the need for and expense of duplicate audits. Audits are completed by local BRCGS-trained and approved auditors to enable an internationally accepted standard to be audited at local rates.
