Grangemouth & Wakefield Depots Achieve BRC Accreditation
Malcolm Logistics have recently added another two sites into its growing BRC accreditation portfolio with “Grangemouth & Wakefield” the latest additions. These sites join in with our other leading locations at Crick / Haydock & Newhouse which already have this accreditation bringing our UK total to five sites.
Re-certification to the BRC Global Standards for Storage and Distribution is an ongoing commitment to our customers that we can consistently be trusted with their products and their customers’ reputations.
Freddy Solomon, Malcolm Logistics, Director of Warehouse Operations & Business Development said:
"We fully understand how critical it is to our customers to have complete confidence in our ability to uphold supply chain integrity. The standard has necessitated that we built a culture around quality that involves everyone, at all levels within the Logistics Division. Our staff recognise that our continued re-certification to the standard is now an established part of our operating profile, and that re-certification as a process helps us further promote “Continuous Improvement” to ensure consistency and confidence throughout the supply chain.”
BRC Global Standards is a leading food safety and quality certification programme, used by over 23,000 certificated suppliers in 123 countries. BRC introduced the Global Standard for Storage and Distribution to complement the suite of Global Standards covering the production of food, packaging and consumer products.
BRC Global Standards are now often a fundamental requirement of leading retailers.
Re-certification of the BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution (Issue 2) accreditation is core to our business values, demonstrating that Malcolm Logistics adheres to a measured set of standards, and is compliant with all relevant legislation to the BRC’s code of practice. Our key objective is to gain accreditation across all UK Locations by May 2017.
Additionally BRC Global Standards for Storage and Distribution (Issue 3) is effective from 01/02/2017 and has been developed by a multi-stakeholder group to ensure that the standards are robust enough to meet current industry needs. Issue 3 will allow Malcolm Logistics to further align with BRC Global Standards ensuring further consistency throughout the supply chain.
