Fowler Welch ambient first

Spalding, Lincolnshire, UK: Fowler Welch, well-known for its chilled foods operation, has received British Retail Consortium (BRC) accreditation to its Heywood depot.

It is the first time the BRC has accredited an ambient operation in the UK. Fowler has BRC recognition of its chilled business and the Heywood ambient certification also gives accreditation at Fowler’s other 12 UK locations.

BRC Accreditation is not a legal requirement, but Fowler Welch recognises the importance of setting a minimum quality standard by which it can satisfy customers who are increasingly looking for full traceability across their entire supply chain.

At Heywood the BRC standard applies to all processes within the operation from goods inwards, administration, product audit, picking, stock control, health and safety and transport operations.

Paul Milnes, head of operations, ambient, says BRC Accreditation provides a key differential for potential customers.

“We have established a track-record of speed and efficiency in the chilled sector and want to bring many of the benefits, such as Day One for Day Two delivery, into the multi-category ambient arena,” he said.

“So we’re delighted to have secured accreditation. Not only will it continue to provide re-assurance for our many existing customers, this BRC seal of approval will be of great interest to possible new ones.”
