Wholesaler celebrates top accreditation

Lomond: The Wholesale Food Co is celebrating after being awarded the highest-level AA grade BRC Global Standard Accreditation

Developed by the industry to identify best practice, the BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution is specifically designed for logistics operations dealing with food, packaging and consumer products and sets a benchmark for the sector.

“We’re thrilled that we’ve retained this important accreditation,” said Barbara Henderson, Director. “This reflects the incredibly hard work the team has put in, particularly during the challenging period of the pandemic, as well as our focus on always delivering the very highest level of service for our customers.”

The Glasgow-based wholesaler was awarded the top AA grade as it demonstrated the highest quality product safety, integrity, quality and legality throughout the business.

During the audit, the wholesaler was assessed on elements such as organisational structure, responsibility and management, hazard and risk analysis, site and building standards, facility management, personnel and more.
