We’re AA Graded!
A BRC audit is, under normal circumstances, a fairly stressful affair. And, under normal circumstances, The Label Makers would be content to walk away with our normal good result post audit…i.e. well done, you’ve passed. This time however we have achieved an AA grade certification, something we’re [understandably] very proud of! Under the revised issue 5 of the BRC Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials Basic Hygiene Category, an AA grade is the highest award that a business can achieve within the announced audit certification scheme….boom!
Just to be clear for anyone unfamiliar with the importance of BRC…certification streamlines the supplier approval process and provides reassurance to processors, food manufacturers and retailers that The Label Makers meet their legal requirements and their Quality Management System comprising of a Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point (HACCP) System, Good Manufacturing Practices, hygiene, safety and quality requirements is of the highest standard.
This is what The Label Makers’ MD, David Webster, said of the achievement: “It is vitally important for us to ensure that our processes and procedures meet the highest standards and achieving a AA grading only serves to reinforce that commitment. We are very proud to be awarded the excellent grade, which is a testament to the hard work and resolve of our employees.”
