BRC Global Food Standard

The BRC Global Food Standard provides a framework to manage food safety, integrity, legality and quality. It provides the operational controls for companies in all stages of the food chain to achieve these criteria.

Getting a BRC Food certificate requires a complete HACCP system to be in place, as well as a quality management system and to comply with various other requirements, requiring you to cover 300+ control points in all.

What’s the difference between BRC and IFS?

Within the international food production industries the IFS certification is more popular within Europe, being a creation of Germany and France, while BRC, being British, has more prominence in English speaking countries.

In their actual content however, IFS and BRC are very similar, both certifications ensuring high levels of food safety in food production.
