BRC Audit Compliance

Audit Compliance

Consumers are now more aware of the safety of the food that they eat and this has prompted retailers and food service providers to implement measures to protect themselves against a recall. Food Safety is of critical importance when working at any stage of the food supply chain, to protect consumers, meet legal obligations and to safeguard brands.  As a result, retailers ask that their suppliers provide such assurance by achieving GFSI certification.

BRC is an internationally recognised mark of food safety and quality.

The British Retail Consortium (BRC),  Global Standard for Food Safety began in the UK to help the food industry meet the legislative requirements of the EU General Product Safety Directive and the UK Food Safety Act.  BRC certification is an internationally recognized mark of food safety and quality. Certification is achieved by undertaking a third-party audit against Standard requirements by an accredited certification body (CB).  BRC rates CBs on their technical performance and efficiency in customer service.  The BRC publish standards for the best practices for the food and manufacturing industries and has received global recognition.  The standard is an HACCP based food safety and quality management system based on requirements specified in the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Benchmarking Requirements document.  Requirements are risk-based to fit individual needs and to provide the necessary level of assurance.

BRC certification provides internationally recognised accredited food safety and quality certification, food safety assurance, reduced supply chain audits and a system which supports legal compliance.

Established in 1955, JAX began developing solutions to common lubrication issues within industry, including the automotive and the food industry. This problem solving attitude and their technical knowledge lead to partnerships with Food producers and the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) to develop a lubricant safe enough to be used within a food factory that may have ‘incidental contact’. By 1962 JAX had developed, proved and received the first USDA approval of a lubricant to be used within a Food Factory. That approval became the foundation of what the industry today calls ‘FOOD GRADE Lubricants’.

What is Food Grade?

Food Grade Lubricants are all about experience in testing. Unlike Industrial products, where additives can be sourced and included within lubricants to bolster performance, food grade lubricants can only be improved by research, development, and constant testing.
