At the heart of the BRC Global Standards certification programme is a strong commitment to share best practice to help improve food safety
London, UK (PRWEB) January 20, 2014
BRC Global Standards is pleased to announce the pending publication of the very first issue of its Global Standard for Agents and Brokers.
The BRC Global Standard for Agents and Brokers, Issue 1, has been developed to provide a framework to manage product safety, quality and legality for businesses in the food and food packaging industries that buy, sell or facilitate the trade of products but do not have their own production, storage or distribution facilities.
BRC Global Standards publishes a series of standards that cover food safety, packaging and packaging materials, storage and distribution, consumer products and, now, agents and brokers. The standards guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria and ensure that manufacturers fulfill their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer. BRC Global Standards are now often a fundamental requirement of leading retailers, who use them as part of their brand protection processes.
The British Retail Consortium (BRC) is the UK's leading retail trade association. It represents the full range of retailers — large and small, multiples and independents, food and non-food, online and store based.
