BRC is an international Food Safety Management Systems standard and is one of the GFSI recognized certification schemes. It contains requirements for food processors to follow to build an effective food safety management system.
There are also editions of the standard for food packaging manufacturers, storage and distribution, and now agents and brokers.
The requirements of the standard address the key elements that must be in place for your organization to ensure the production of safe products.
BRC Certification is recognized by GFSI, an important consideration when choosing a certification scheme because many major manufacturers and retailers require a GFSI recognized certification. Other recognized certification schemes include FSSC 22000 and SQF.
