Top BRC accreditation retained - Macphie

Macphie has achieved the top rating for food safety and quality from retail industry association the British Retail Consortium (BRC).

Following rigorous on-site audits at both its Aberdeenshire and North Lanarkshire manufacturing facilities, Macphie was awarded AA status – the highest possible scoring from the renowned safety and quality certification programme of which less than 40% of all BRC accredited businesses achieve.

Technical director Mark Duncan said: “Quality shines through at Macphie and this top score is testament to our programme of continuous improvement.

“We have maintained the highest BRC grade annually since its conception in the 1990s and the auditor commented that it was clear to see why. She was impressed with our robust quality management system as well as the can-do attitude of our team.

“We are trusted to deliver and it’s our commitment to quality that has helped build long-lasting relationships with so many of our customers.”

The BRC Global Standards have set the benchmark for over 20 years and have been adopted by over 20,000 sites in 130 countries. Successful certification guarantees a manufacturer is meeting legal obligations as well as strict quality, safety, and operational criteria to protect the end user.
