Overview

The British Retail Consortium Standard Global Standard - Food was originally conceived to meet an increasing demand for a unified standard to be used by the major retailers in the UK for their suppliers of "own label" food products. The system has proved so successful that it is now used throughout the food industry, and an estimated 6000 food manufacturers worldwide already have the Standard. Companies are often unsure about how to approach attaining certification - often a demanding process, especially at the first attempt. Not only are there almost 300 clauses to satisfy, there are also general concerns such as how to correct non-conformities within very specific deadlines. Even when their operations are actually quite satisfactory, many suppliers find themselves poorly prepared for the evaluation and do not perform as well as they might. This book offers companies in the food industry the first comprehensive guide to preparing for a BRC Standard evaluation. Using real life examples, it enables manufacturers to ensure that the correct systems are in place to achieve the Standard and present themselves in the best way during the evaluation process. It also recommends the steps to take following evaluation and how to correct non-conformities. The book is aimed at suppliers who are seeking certification for the first time and at those already in the scheme seeking to improve their grades. It will also be of interest to certification bodies and consultants to the food industry.
