Marsden Packaging are proud to announce that we have attained an AA+ grade in the British Retail Consortium Global Standards (BRCGS) audit. The AA+ grade was awarded for our outstanding performance in an unannounced audit conducted in January 2023.
The BRCGS audit is the gold standard for food audits in the packing industry, and we undergo this rigorous assessment every year. Last year, new rules were introduced that required one in every three annual audits to be unannounced. This means that at any time during a four-month window, auditors can turn up and conduct their audit without prior notice.
We were advised in 2022 that we would have an unannounced audit, with the window open from the middle of October to the middle of February. The audit was conducted on 30th and 31st January, and we are pleased to have retained our AA grade, which has now become an AA+ to denote that it was unannounced.
“We are thrilled to have achieved an AA+ grade in our recent BRCGS audit,” said Michael Briggs, Managing Director of our company. “This result is a testament to our commitment to providing the highest standards of quality and safety in the packing industry. Our team has worked tirelessly to ensure that our processes and procedures meet and exceed the requirements of the BRCGS audit, and we are proud to have achieved this outstanding result.”
Our attainment of the AA+ grade demonstrates our ongoing commitment to food safety and quality. The Marsden Packaging focus on continuous improvement and adherence to strict industry standards has enabled us to provide our customers with the highest levels of service and quality.
