BRCGS is a very big deal in our world. The BRCGS Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging materials is the first standard internationally to be recognised by Global Food Safety Initiative (GSR) benchmarking committee and is used by over 22,000 suppliers.

It has been designed to assist in the production of safe packaging materials as well as manage product quality to meet customer requirements. The objective of the BRCGS standard is to ensure that product integrity during storage and distribution is maintained and that customer confidence is upheld.

With the food industry under increasing scrutiny, certification is big business and BRCGS gives Sorbafreeze an internationally recognised mark of quality.
