A fundamental requirement of many leading retailers

BRC Global Standards are a leading safety and quality certification programme. The Standards guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria, ensure that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations, and provide protection for the end consumer.

The Global Standard for Storage and Distribution provides the essential certification link between the range of BRC manufacturing Standards and the end user, the retailer and the food service company.
