For a further consecutive year, Prosur has passed the BRC and IFS audits to achieve these certifications, this time with the highest possible rating (Grade A and Higher level respectively). This success is the result of two major factors. Firstly, the commitment of the company to achieve the highest excellence in the development of its products and secondly, the investment in a new plant and machinery.
BRC (British Retail Consortium). BRC is one of the most internationally widespread models for distributors and supermarkets to evaluate their suppliers. The BRC standard was born to meet an explicit demand by the British mass retail industry to audit the production methods and hygiene criteria of its suppliers in the context of their shared principles. The certificate is popular in the markets of the Commonwealth, as well as in Asian markets.
IFS Food Standard. The Federal Association of the German Trade Association (BDH) and the Trade and Distribution Federation (FDC) created the IFS certificate in order to create a common reference for food safety. Other European countries such as Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy also fall back on this norm. In addition to ensuring the consumer’s food safety, the demanding IFS standard, controls the quality of the production facilities and processes. IFS certified companies show a high level of professionalism.
Both certifications are internationally recognized, include a set of standards applicable to suppliers and manufacturers in the field of food and quality safety, ensure compliance with legal obligations and provide the highest level of protection to their customers.
These certificates, together with our new facilities and our strong investment in new and modern machinery will help Prosur to open new markets and consolidate existing ones.
