BRC stands for British Retail Consortium and is the leading standard for food safety and quality control. BRC certification is globally recognised and guarantees compliance with stringent food safety standards. The certificate assesses various aspects such as product integrity, food safety systems, production processes and the traceability of raw materials.

To obtain BRC certification, food producers must comply with the requirements of the standards pertaining to their specific sector and activities. The BRC certificate is recognised by retailers, distributors and food companies around the world.

The advantages of a BRC certificate:

  • Customer confidence: obtaining the BRC certificate demonstrates that a company is committed to food safety and quality.

  • Improved business processes: because companies have to thoroughly evaluate their business processes, this can lead to a general improvement in business performance.

  • Risk management: by complying with the standards of the BRC certificate, an organisation can reduce the risks of food-related hazards.

  • Access to markets: a BRC certificate is recognised and respected by retailers, distributors and food companies around the world. Having a BRC certificate can simplify access to new markets and may be required by many large retail chains.


Guaranteeing food safety should be top priority for every organisation in the food industry. Food safety is extremely important for protecting consumers against the potentially harmful consequences of contaminated food. Obtaining the BRC certificate improves your company’s reputation.
