Originally introduced in 2006, the Global Standard for Storage and Distribution establishes a common recognised standard, ensuring best practice in the safe handling, hygiene, storage and distribution of food products and promotes continuous improvement in operating practices. It requires companies to adopt and implement hazard and risk analysis (HACCP), have a documented and effective Quality Management System and to control Environment standards, products, processes and personnel. And as one of the first transport and logistics companies to be accredited with the Standard, Knights of Old remain committed to maintaining their investment and continuing to provide their customers with a first-rate logistics service.
“Our BRC accreditation has become central to our business values, demonstrating that the company adheres to measured set of standards and is compliant to all relevant legislation and to the BRC’s code of practice. All staff recognise that our continued re-accreditation to the Standard is an established part of our operating profile, a hallmark of quality and delivering the best value.
“This is about ensuring that our customers remain totally confident in our abilities to manage their products safely throughout the storage and distribution process,” says Ian Beattie, group managing director, Knights of Old.
Knights of Old is one of the largest privately owned logistics companies in the Midlands, with its operations covering UK, Ireland and mainland Europe. Combined with warehousing, export packing and e-fulfilment facilities, the company offers a full, in-house supply chain service.
