One of the GFSI-recognized certification systems, BRC is an international food safety management system standard. It outlines the steps food processors must take to ensure the safety of their products. Food packaging producers, storage and distribution, and now agents and brokers all have their copies of the standard. For your business to produce a safe product, you must comply with the standard standards. Choosing a certification scheme that is GFSI-recognized is vital, as many large manufacturers and merchants require a GFSI-recognized certification. FSSC 22000 and SQF are also widely accepted certification programmes.
It is estimated that more than 16,000 establishments around the world are BRC Global Standard for Food Safety certified. An audit by a Certification Body is required before your company or facilities can be included in this list; if you meet all of the standard’s requirements, you can become certified. If you want to keep your certification, you’ll have to submit to frequent audits by the Certification Body. Mission

It Is Brc’s Long-term Plan
A five-year strategy for growth and impact
To better serve our clients in an ever-evolving city, the 5-Year Strategic Plan “BRC Beyond 50: Moving Forward, Increasing Our Impact, and Achieving Our Potential” will be unveiled in early 2021.
BRC’s long-term strategy is outlined in this plan, which was developed after a thorough environmental analysis and consultation with the company’s employees, clients, friends, supporters, and partners.
COVID-19 was first adopted by our Board of Directors in December 2019 and came just in time for BRC to launch the plan. To ensure the health, safety, and well-being of our clients, employees, and the company as a whole, BRC had to adjust its focus. For this reason, as well as the fact that national discourse on systematic racism is once again gaining traction, BRC decided to reevaluate its strategic plan to ensure that it reflects the critical issues of the global pandemic and social justice that will loom large in the year 2020. In an update titled “BRC Beyond 50: Reflecting and Recommitting,” BRC has done so.

Food packaging and packaging materials are covered under the BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials (BRC GSP). For example, activities such as wholesale, importation, distribution or storage that are not under the direct control of the company cannot be audited by the standard.
This standard applies to all firms that provide storage and distribution services, including contracted services and wholesale businesses with their storage and distribution facilities.
