Plascon is BRCGS 'AA' certified in food grade flexible packaging

Why BRCGS 'AA' Certification is Critical for Your Food Grade Packaging

Plascon Group Achieves BRCGS Double A Rating!

What this certification means, and why it is important to your packaging needs.

What is BRCGS anyway?

The British Retail Consortium Global Standard (BRCGS) is an independent audit group focused on Global Standards for food safety, packaging materials and the storage and distribution of consumer products.

Established in 1996 by a group of retailers, BRCGS was created with the aim of harmonizing food safety standards on a global scale, promoting consistency and reliability throughout supply chains.

Why is BRCGS important?

Today the BRCGS sets the benchmark for good manufacturing practices and helps to provide assurance to customers that products are safe, legal and of the highest quality available.

BRCGS is recognized across both food and non-food categories and operates the most rigorous third-party certification of its type. The rigorous certification process, carried out by highly trained auditors, instills confidence in consumers by guaranteeing that products from BRCGS-certified vendors meet the highest standards of excellence.


What does BRCGS do for me?
