Puratos Canada achieves "A" level BRC certification
The food industry has recently implemented a universally recognized food safety auditing system, known as GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative). The purpose of which is to allow industries access to unbiased formal third party audit reports of any inspected facility, eliminating time consuming and costly audits from individual companies. The GFSI has several approved auditing systems, one of which is BRC (British Retail Consortium). Puratos, along with most of the bakery industry, has opted to undergo audits based upon the BRC standard. This annual audit is an in-depth examination of approximately 900 components of our food safety and quality systems. It is conducted by an independent third-party auditor over a period of five days.
Puratos Canada is proud to have achieved “A” level BRC certification for the second year in a row. This is the best possible level of certification. While we can always continue to improve, this “A” level BRC certification confirms our internal value that at Puratos, quality is a way of life.
