The in-depth audit, which took place over two days, covered elements such as; senior management commitment and continuous improvement, hazard and risk analysis, quality management system, site and building standards, vehicle operating standards, facility management, good operating practices and personnel.
Lindum have worked hard to improve their grading from an A Grade last year to improve their whole business in line with the new version 3 standards.
Bernard Sellars, Managing Director said “This outstanding achievement signifies an ongoing team effort and I would personally like to thank all the staff who were involved in preparing for the audit and the work they put in to help us attain BRC certification at the AA grade.”
He added “BRC certification demonstrates our desire to continually innovate our product range, improve our processes and systems and provide the best level of service to all our customers.”
BRC Global Standards is a leading brand and consumer protection organisation. Its food safety and quality certification programme is now used by over 25,000 certificated suppliers over 130 countries. The standard was introduced to provide a link between the manufacturing standards and end users like retailers or food service companies.
Ed Willey, Operations Director commented “The team behind the scenes have taken great pride in the part they have played in securing our certification. Working with our external consultant Richard Graham and his local company Qualiform, to conduct our internal audits has been a great help and will mean that our customers benefit from ongoing confidence in our ability to maintain the integrity of their supply chain with the products we supply.
Re-certification is now a core element of Lindum’s operating procedures.”
