Today, consumers’ confidence in the quality and safety of the food products they purchase is paramount for retailers and suppliers alike. Since their introduction in 1998, the BRC Global Standards have become a priority for retailers and manufacturers in the food industry who are committed to delivering high-quality and safe products via sustainable means.
Version 8, the latest iteration, provides an umbrella framework for other individual international regulations regarding food safety and quality monitoring. It helps suppliers raise the bar on things like reducing food recalls due to factors including: mislabeling, pathogen contamination, product integrity and food fraud. Version 8 will also assist companies in efforts to focus on the achievement of safe products by adopting best practices and methodologies for safe food handling.
The rigorous approach of the BRC Standard makes it one of the most effective guidelines for reducing risk and maintaining compliance for international food safety and quality. By adopting the guidance of Version 8, food suppliers and manufacturers can open the doors to new international markets and become leaders in their field by doing business at the global level.
