Direct Food Ingredients has achieved a AA grade in BRC Global Standard for Agents and Broker, making the firm one of the first ingredients suppliers in the UK to achieve this accreditation.
The BRC Global Standard Audit has been developed to provide a framework for managing product safety, quality and legality for non-manufacturing businesses in the food and packaging industries.
With five key focuses, the Global Standard concentrates on senior management commitment and continued improvement, hazard and risk assessment, product safety and quality management system, supplier and subcontracted service management and personnel.
Steve Loake, managing director of Direct Food Ingredients, said “We are incredibly delighted to have been awarded this highly-respected accreditation, achieving a status which we did not know would be possible on the initial attempt at this new global standard version.”
“In addition to our noteworthy certification from Informed-Sport, this accreditation gives us a remarkable advantage in this forever expanding industry.”
Direct Food Ingredients has turned over in excess of £21.2m at year end in 2017.
