BRC, British Retail Consortium
The large British supermarket chains (among which Tesco, Safeway, Somerfield, Sainsbury) are united in the British Retail Consortium.
Together they have drawn up a protocol incorporating the requirements that must be met by suppliers of food products: the BRC Food Standard.
This standard includes the main elements contained in ISO-9000 pertaining to quality management and food safety. It covers an HACCP plan as well as conditions that management and information provision are required to meet.
Given that Van Leeuwen Kipspecialiteiten also supplies large retail organisations, the BRC certificate has been incorporated into our quality system.
