e-foods – first to achieve the BRC Global Standard for Agents & Brokers
e-foods is delighted to have achieved certification to the BRC Global Standard for Agents & Brokers. The standard, awarded after independent audit, is a great way to demonstrate that e-foods’ operational and supply chain management procedures are robust and effective.
The Agents & Brokers Standard was created to prove Due Diligence for the supply of high risk food categories for non-manufacturing companies such as e-foods. e-foods certification covers the supply of ambient, chilled and frozen foods.
“A real coup for e-foods”
“It’s a real coup for e-foods – we’re the first business of our type to achieve the standard and it will give our customers and future clients total confidence in safe, legal and traceable supply from e-foods”, said Rob Henry, e-foods’ Quality Assurance & Technical Manager.
Rob is head of the quality team that successfully oversees the systems and processes of supplier take-on, supply of product, distribution and end user receipt.
Rob continued, “our office and field teams hold the relevant qualifications covering HACCP, Food Safety, Allergen Management and effective Auditing and inspection skills, which allows us to manage and monitor supplier processes and performance right down to unannounced inspection visits. The Standard also covers the management of food safety/security events and confirms e-foods’ ability to respond and resolve any incident."
Why does it matter?
Achieving the standard proves e-foods’ commitment to best practice on product safety, quality and that e-foods has the operational capability to fulfil obligations of legal compliance and consumer protection. Due diligence is a cornerstone of the food industry and e-foods’ certification gives clients demonstrable proof that, in choosing e-foods, they have safe and legal supply.
What does it mean for e-foods’ clients?
“It’s simple really, e-foods lifts away the burden of managing supply chain accreditation, safety and integrity and the standard confirms e-foods market leading expertise to our clients!” Concluded Rob.
Congratulations to Rob and his team for their outstanding work!
