What does our BRCGS accreditation mean?

We've just made one of the most exciting announcements in our history... We're AA accredited to the BRCGS Storage and Distribution standard! BRCGS is a leading global brand and consumer protection organisation, used by over 29,000 certificated suppliers in over 130 countries. It sets standards for food safety, packaging, storage, and distribution, ensuring that products meet quality, safety, and operational criteria. But what does this mean for you? We've outlined all the benefits of our new accreditation, and why we're so excited about it! If you’re an existing customer… Even greater trust and confidence in our service We’re always shouting about our commitment to quality, safety and compliance. And quite simply, BRCGS accreditation holds us to our claims. Accreditation involves a rigorous audit process, including a full and detailed look into our policies and operating procedures, so you can have complete trust and confidence in our services. Improved supply chain efficiency Our compliance to BRCGS standard helps to improve our overall supply chain efficiency. This means enhanced safety practices, better resource management, and robust quality assurance processes to help us keep service levels high, and your customers happy. A culture of continuous improvement The BRCGS standard promotes a culture of continuous improvement, perfectly aligning with our own ethos: Passion, People, Planet. This synergy ensures that our processes are constantly evolving and enhancing, ultimately benefiting you with innovative and forward-thinking practices. A future-proofed Browns BRCGS accreditation not only helps in identifying and mitigating risks but also ensures smooth and uninterrupted supply chain operations. The standard helps our resilience against potential disruptions and works to strengthen our commitment to delivering reliable and efficient services. If you’re a prospective customer… Streamlined supplier process With BRCGS certification being a globally recognised and trusted standard, we meet the highest benchmarks for quality and safety. Often a prerequisite for procurement tenders, our certification allows you to bypass some of your rigorous vetting processes, saving valuable time and effort when onboarding us as a supplier. Comprehensive coverage BRCGS certification covers a huge range of aspects, from quality control to hygiene practices, which ensures that all your needs, and the needs of your customers, are comprehensively met. Reduced risk of supply chain disruption Our BRCGS accreditation helps to ensure a stable supply chain, minimising risks associated with product contamination or logistics failures. Reputation for excellence BRCGS certification not only helps us attract new customers and enter new markets, but also reassures your own customers that their goods are being handled by a reliable and trusted provider on your behalf.

We are thrilled to share that Distribution House has been graded ‘AA’ for the BRGCS Storage and Distribution standard , the highest possible announced audit status. BRCGS, a leading global brand and consumer protection organisation, sets benchmarks for best practices in food safety, packaging, storage, and distribution, recognising quality, safety, compliance, and a culture of continuous improvement.

After eagerly holding onto this news for the past few weeks, I’m thrilled to finally celebrate and share this outstanding achievement with the team and our customers. From our warehousing team to our drivers on the roads, everyone has played a crucial role in this rigorous process, and it’s a clear demonstration of our ambition, and dedication to providing the best service levels in Staffordshire and beyond.
