Malcolm Logistics' Newhouse depot is the first in the world to gain BRC Global Standards Storage & Distribution Certification Version 3, achieving an outstanding AA-Grade.
To mark this achievement, John Hartley, MD of QAIC, will visit the Newhouse Depot on 22nd February to present a signed, framed certificate.
Freddy Solomon, Malcolm Logistics' Director of Warehouse Operations & Business Development said: "We fully understand how critical it is to our customers to have complete confidence in our ability to uphold supply chain integrity. The standard has necessitated that we built a culture around quality that involves everyone, at all levels within the Logistics Division.
"Our staff recognise that our continued re-certification to the standard is now an established part of our operating profile, and that re-certification as a process helps us further promote “Continuous Improvement” to ensure consistency and confidence throughout the supply chain.”
BRC Global Standards is a leading food safety and quality certification programme, used by over 23,000 certificated suppliers in 123 countries. BRC introduced the Global Standard for Storage and Distribution to complement the suite of Global Standards covering the production of food, packaging and consumer products.
BRC Global Standards are now often a fundamental requirement of leading retailers.
