The snap inspection was part of the British Retail Consortium enforcement of the global standards of storage and distribution of chilled and frozen foods, which were upgraded in February 2017.

“Our innovative facility, and the many bespoke systems we have meticulously developed over the years are designed to deliver the highest quality and efficiency for our customers, and this AA+ rating is a great testimony that our hard work is recognised by the industry experts,” says Andrew Baldwin, managing director, Reed Boardall cold storage division.

The rating is the highest possible level of accreditation, and was awarded after an unannounced inspection of the firm’s four individual cold stores by the BRC’s inspection partner Kiwa Agri Food.

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) is the leading trade association for UK retailing.  Although the BRC food safety standard began in the UK, it is now recognised as a global standard. There are over 17,000 BRC certified sites worldwide, and a large network of BRC certification bodies in around 100 countries.

“We work really hard to be the best we possibly can be in a very competitive sector. The BRC’s standards are globally recognised, and to receive the highest possible rating is an outstanding result for us as a business,” Baldwin says.
