Higgins successfully retain prestigious food safety award

Our company is obliged to have an independent audit annually to abide by the strict high standards of food safety procedures our customers demand.

It enables our business to benchmark standards, monitor its ability to reduce risk and ensure the risk management system remains effective.

In July this year, the BRC standard was updated and its scope widened making compliance much more demanding.

The extent of the changes resulted in the audit process taking 2 days rather than one.

I am pleased to say that we have passed our audit against this more demanding standard and would like to thank everyone who met the auditor, and who contributed information, for their help.

The standard has no fewer than 281 individual requirements against which food businesses are measured before they can be accredited to BRC status.

Our business had only 14 Minor non-conformances, no Major and no Fundamental non-conformances against these 281 sections.

This gives us category B status which is a great result.

Many thanks to everyone.
