- Any combination of the two types businesses that fall within the scope of the standard

Supported by customers
Many retailers, food service companies and major food manufacturers around the world support the BRCGS Global Standard for Storage and Distribution as a core food safety standard and accept certification to this standard as a pre-requisite to their supplier approval process.
Developed by industry experts, the standard incorporates quality management systems and internationally accepted best practices to ensure the safety and quality of products during storage and distribution. It also features multiple optional modules to support flexibility for your business.
Widely accepted certification reduces the need 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.
