Intelligent Blends has announced it has renewed/earned certification with a AA Grade through the British Retail Consortium (BRC) under the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) for its manufacturing location in San Diego California.
“The BRC certification is validation of our long term commitment to providing the highest quality food safety standards within the supply chain” explains Patricia Tjong Quality Control Manager. “A growing number of manufacturers, retail and food service companies globally and in North America require this independent certification”
Michael Ishayik, President for Intelligent Blends explains the rationale in seeking the certification.
“Globally recognized certification such as BRC helps us to ensure our product manufacturing and food safety practices are meeting the best possible standards and provide valuable third party recognition of our commitment to our customers”
Intelligent Blends is also Certified by BRC/GFSI, QAI/USDA Organic, Costco/GMP, Star K Kosher and Fair Trade.
BRC Global Standards is a leading safety and quality certification program, used by over 23,000 certificated suppliers in 123 countries, with certification issued through a worldwide network of accredited certification bodies.
The Standards guarantee the standardization of quality, safety and operational criteria and ensure that manufacturers fulfill their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer. BRC Global Standards are now often a fundamental requirement of leading retailers.
Originally introduced in 2006, the Global Standard for Storage and distribution provides the essential certification link between the range of BRC manufacturing standards and the end user, retailer, and the food service company. BRC has been recognized internationally as the leader in food safety certification. As a member of the GFSI, the BRC is committed to continuous improvement of its food safety standards and requires the same continuous improvement from the distribution centers they certify.
