Knights of Old has maintained its BRC accreditation across four depots, Kettering 1,2,4 and Northampton following a recent annual audit.
Compliance manager Tony Quenet 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 group. All 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 introduced the Global Standard for Storage and Distribution in 2006 to complement the suite of Global Standards covering the production of food, packaging and consumer products. The Standard allows the chain of product certification to be completed, from the primary processor to manufacturer, and from manufacturer to retailer.
The BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution (Issue 3) effective from the start of next year 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 the Knights of Old Group to further align with other BRC Global Standards ensuring consistency throughout the supply chain.
