Posted on 03.03.2021

Amco are delighted to be picking up on industry demand for specialist storage and transport in the retail sector by seeking partnerships and new customers that require service levels to the BRCGS (Brand Reputation Compliance Global Standards) for Storage and Distribution.

 

ABOUT THE BRCGS

BRCGS is a leading brand and consumer protection organisation, used by over 29,000 certified suppliers in over 130 countries. The BRCGS Standard is a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) recognised certification program which others may previously know as the BRC (British Retail Consortium) Global Standard.

Now a fundamental requirement for leading retailers, manufacturers and food service organisations, the BRCGS offers assurance for product safety, quality, integrity and legality with clearly defined risk-based requirements. The Standard is for Food Safety, Packaging Materials, and Consumer Products for general merchandise, personal care and household goods. The Standard includes:

  • Retailers
  • Manufacturers
  • Food Service Organisations
  • Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Packaging Materials
  • Global Specifiers

The BRCGS Standard allows the supply chain of product certification to be completed, in the case of food, from grower and processer, to the manufacturer and then from manufacturer to retailer; designed to reflect best practice and facilitate a process of continuous improvement through risk-based product safety management systems.
