The Importance of BRCGS Certification in Food Safety and Packaging Industry

The Importance of BRCGS Certification in Food Safety and Packaging Industry

Food safety is a crucial factor in the food supply chain. Therefore, selecting producers that meet specific packaging material standards plays a key role in ensuring food safety and hygiene and recognition as a trusted supplier.

The BRCGS Global Standard for Packaging Materials helps brands demonstrate they are providing products that are quality assured, legally compliant, and authentic.

What is BRCGS Certification? 

BRC (British Retail Consortium) was founded in 1996 by retailers who wanted to harmonize food safety standards across the supply chain. Today, BRCGS is a leading global brand and consumer protection scheme recognized by thousands of customers worldwide. 

BRCGS Packaging Materials helps build confidence in the supply chain by certifying packaging producers for the food industry. The Standard specifies the product safety, quality and operational criteria that must be in place within a packaging manufacturing organization to fulfil its obligations with regard to legal compliance and protection of the consumer. To receive a BRCGS certification for packaging and packaging materials, a company’s premises, operational systems and procedures are assessed against the requirements of the Standard by the certification body.

There are many benefits of working with a packaging producer with BRCGS certification.

Globally Recognized Certification 

Since its foundation in the UK, BRCGS has grown into a global brand that provides certifications sought by leading retailers, producers, and food service companies worldwide. So much so that, 70% of the top 10 global retailers require a BRCGS certification before accepting a product into their stores.

Supplier and Customer Trust 

When assessing the capabilities of their suppliers, many brand owners, retailers, food service companies, and manufacturers around the world seek BRCGS certification. Whether you are a local brand or whether you operate in an emerging global market, choosing a BRCGS-certified packaging producer will help you earn your customers’ trust in your products. Working with a BRCGS-certified packaging producer enables you to improve product safety and reduce waste, complaints, and returns.

Therefore, holding a BRCGS certification enhances brands’ international recognition for their quality and responsible production. The standard protects both the brands and the consumers and assures that operational guidelines and product quality and safety requirements are met. If you are a food producer, supplier, or distributor who wants to work with large retailers, the packaging you use will be expected to be BRCGS-certified. GS Packaging holds the internationally recognized BRCGS certification for food packaging production.
