BRC Awards SAI Global 5-Star Rating

November 2, 2017 Julian Dady



We are pleased to announce that SAI Global has been awarded a 5-star rating.  This performance rating awarded by the BRC Global Standards team represents the highest rating and demonstrates our commitment to continual improvement.

First published in 1998, the BRC Global Food Standard is now in its seventh issue and is well-established globally.  The Standard has evolved with input from many leading global specifiers and provides a framework to manage product safety, integrity, legality and quality, and the operational controls for these criteria in the food and food ingredient manufacturing, processing and packing industry.  

To provide transparency in performance, BRC Global Standards awards Certification Bodies with a star rating according to their overall service performance. This reflects the overall management of the BRC certification scheme by the Certification Body head office.

Benefits of being certified to a 5-Star Rated Certification Body:

 - Audit reports that are detailed and of high quality
 - Auditors that are consistent in approach with deep technical knowledge
 - An Audit experience that adds value to your business 
 - Customer engagement and responsiveness throughout the audit process
 - Timely issue of Certificates 

"Cranswick are delighted that SAI Global has been awarded a 5-star rating by the BRC. We have worked with SAI Global as our preferred partner for BRC and other scheme audits for many years. The SAI auditors are total professionals who have excellent technical knowledge under-pinned by category specific experience that ensures all audits thoroughly test our system and procedures, an approach that adds real value to our business and our technical standing with our customers."

Why is BRC Certification important?

  • Builds Customer Confidence - customers have confidence in your production programmes and supply chain management
  • Achievable and Cost Effective - Global recognition reduces the need for duplicate audits
  • Drives business - Many UK, North American and European retailers will only consider business with suppliers who have passed audit and gained certification to the appropriate BRC certification standard.
