BRC (Food Safety)
BRC Global Standard for Food Safety is developed by food industry experts from retailers, manufacturers, and food service organizations to ensure it is a rigorous and detailed, yet easy to understand program.
It is globally established and defined by many leading global specifiers. First published in 1998, it is now on its 8th issue.

Packaging is a fundamental part of any brand. It ensures product integrity, security and drives innovation. Consumers are attracted to strong and recognizable products that need to be consistent in size, color, and shape. Packaging is an integral part of the manufacturing process.
The BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials is the first Packaging Standard in the world to be recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GSFI) benchmarking committee. Over 3,500 suppliers in over 80 countries have chosen to be certificated to this scheme and is recommended or accepted by specifiers worldwide.
The BRC Packaging Standard can be used by any manufacturer producing packaging materials for all types of products – from food to consumer products – at all levels: primary, secondary and tertiary.
Issue 5 of the BRC Global Standard was published in July 2015 after consultation with industry experts and we’ve designed the Standard to help you adopt good manufacturing practices and support quality management systems. This will help you develop and manufacture safe, legal packaging materials that meet the quality levels expected by your customers and consumers.
