Food Safety Certification – Awarded to Galberts
Leading the way in food safety
The BRCGS Global Food Safety Standard has set the benchmark for over 20 years. Adopted by over 20,000 sites in 130 countries, the standard is accepted by 70% of the top 10 global retailers, 60% of the top 10 quick-service restaurants, and 50% of the top 25 manufacturers.
Now in its 8th edition, the standard has constantly evolved to protect the consumer. It was the first standard to be GFSI benchmarked, as well as introduce food safety culture requirements, define food fraud, and reduce audit burden through additional modules.
Developed with input from industry, it provides a framework to manage product safety, integrity, legality and quality, and the operational controls for these criteria in the food and food ingredient manufacturing, processing and packing industry.
Storage & Distribution Certification – Awarded to PRM
Bridging the Missing Link: Supply Chain Safety & Integrity in the warehousing and logistics sector
Supply chain visibility is critical at a time when supply chains have never been so complex. Global supply chains involve multiple intermediaries pre and post manufacturing where goods and end products are passed between factories, shipping vehicles, pallets, warehouses, and delivery fleets. Their journey is fraught with risk. Logistics is no longer a hidden operational function concerned with simply moving goods from A to B. The growth in e-commerce has led to increased service expectations combined with a greater need for personalised, individual, and bespoke orders.
Issue 4 of the Storage and Distribution Standard, launched in 2020, reflects best practice and facilitate a process of continual improvement through well-designed risk-based product safety management systems. It ensures the quality and safety of products during their storage and distribution throughout the supply chain.
With support from leading brands, retailers, storage, logistics and online retailers, the standard has seen 16% year on year growth with sites certified in over 50 countries. The storage and/or distribution operations to which the Standard is applied can be at any point in the distribution chain from primary production to retail.
