We are delighted to announce that Laila’s Fine Foods scored an A+ rating in our recent unannounced BRC audit. BRC Global Standards – the standards and protocol arm of the British Retail Consortium – is a leading brand and consumer protection organisation, employed by over 25, 000 certificated suppliers in 130 countries, with certification issued through a global network of accredited certification bodies.
A BRC Global Standards certification acts as a ‘guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria’ and ensures ‘that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer’. As such, recognition by BRC Global Standards is now often an essential supply requirement of leading retailers and food service organisations.
The unannounced audit scheme means that the BRC audit could occur at any time without notice – necessitating that we were ready to be inspected at any time! We are proud to have received an A+ grade again, representing a very low number of non-conformities, and considered an ‘excellent’ rating within the industry.
Laila’s Fine Foods Commercial & Technical Director Zera Dawson-Gerrard comments “The A+ grade is great recognition of the efforts of all involved and I would like to say well done to all of the team who work so hard throughout the year to keep us audit ready.”
