Ligentia are pleased to announce the recent certification of their warehousing operations in Alfreton under the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard for Storage Distribution-Issue 2.
Ligentia, specialising in e-fulfilment, handling, storage and transportation of products including food ingredients, finished foods and food packaging, has been certified by the BRC, the global leader in third-party food safety standards. These recent certifications recognise Ligentia’s dedication to excellence in customer satisfaction and to the company’s stringent quality control and food safety measures.
Alun Smith, General Manager for Ligentia Contract Logistics, explains the company’s rationale in seeking the certification, ‘the team at Ligentia worked hard to achieve the accreditation and are proud to have achieved a globally recognised certification that helps us to ensure that our warehouses and practices are meeting the best possible standards and provide valuable third-party recognition of our commitment to our customers. Furthermore, it shows our continual excellence and understanding of food safety and we look forward to continuing to strive for improvements in both our business and the industry as a whole.’
Now celebrating 10 years, the BRC has been recognised internationally as the leader in food safety certification. As a member of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) the BRC is committed to continuous improvement of its food safety standard and requires the same continuous improvement from the food processing facilities they certify. A growing number of retailers and major manufacturers in Europe and North America require this independent certification from their suppliers.
