Grocontinental receives BRC accreditation

Whitchurch, Shropshire: Grocontinental has been awarded BRC (British Retail Consortium) Storage and Distribution Accreditation for food products stored at and distributed from its 25-acre site in Whitchurch, Shropshire.

Certification bodies use the BRC Global Standards across the world to enable suppliers to achieve globally recognised standards for food products and to ensure that best practice is established and maintained.

To achieve certification, Grocontinental was audited and scored by independent assessors on the standard of storage and distribution of ambient, chilled and frozen food products and associated food packaging, product inspection, contract packing, quality control inspection; and the chilling, freezing, tempering and defrosting of food products.

David Grocott, joint managing director, Grocontinental: "The BRC award endorses our reputation as one of the major players in the food supply chain industry"

Grocontinental oversees 130,000 pallet spaces of multi-temperature storage and 4,000 daily pallet movements.  The company operates its own fleet of vehicles with 120 temperature-controlled trailers and works with some of the world’s biggest food industry brands such as Müller, First Milk, Gambia, Roberts Bakery, Premier Foods and Cadbury.

Joint managing director David Grocott said: “The BRC award is great news for us and further endorses our increasing reputation as one of the major players in the food supply chain industry.

We are constantly auditing and improving our storage and distribution services and the award is a formal recognition of this.”
