Packaging is a fundamental part of any brand. It defines product integrity, security and drives innovation. The consumers are attracted to strong and recognisable products that need to be consistent in size, colour and shape. Packaging is therefore an integral part of the manufacturing process.
The British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials is the first Packaging Standard in the world to be recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GSFI) benchmarking committee. It’s why 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 the Standard has been designed to help us adopt Good Manufacturing Practices and support Quality Management Systems. This help us to develop and manufacture safe, legal packaging materials that meet the quality levels expected by our customers and consumers.
