BRC GRADE 'A'
We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the highest grade possible during our January 2015 audit – grade A. BRC Global Standards is a leading safety and quality certification programme, used by over 20,000 businesses in 90 countries. The Standards are a worldwide guarantee of quality, safety and operational criteria and ensure that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations and provide protection for the end user. Our certification at Caterite covers the butchery of meat and the production of meat products as well as the slicing and packaging of continental meats and cheese.
The ISO9001 Quality Management System ensures our business is committed to total quality management, a customer focus and a continually improving process approach. Our ISO9001 accreditation means that Caterite is committed to quality and improvement. Annually the results of our external audits must prove we are continually developing our approach to benefit our customers, employees, suppliers and other stakeholders.
The ISO14001 Environmental Management Standard serves as a framework of control for our business to create our own environmental standards. ISO14001 certifiesthat our existing environmental management system is helping to reduce the impact of our business on the environment. It also shows that we are committed to making further improvements in the future. Additionally, our ISO14001 accreditation demonstrates that we are taking significant steps, year on year, to improve our processes and reduce our carbon footprint.
