BRC Food Safety

What is BRC Food Safety?

BRC Food Safety is the largest Global GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) Manufacturing Scheme. First published in 1998, it is now on its 8th issue which was released in 2018.

The standard provides certification for food manufacturers who implement good manufacturing practices and have supporting QMS to produce safe, legal products whilst meeting their customers’ quality requirements.

The Standard applies to any food processing or packing operation where open food is handled, processed or packaged. This may range from primary products such as fresh produce pack houses and slaughter houses through to processed foods, canneries and high risk, ready to eat products.
