PML gets AA+ BRC Global Standard

London, UK: PML has gained a rating of AA+ under the new BRC Global Standard Issue 8 for Food Safety.

The audit was carried out over two days and assesses new risks and revised legislation and practices intended to improve food safety. PML provides a temperature-sensitive packing service at its Heathrow headquarters.

Nick Finbow, sales director at PML, said: “Customers like to access our in-house packing facility as it represents a route to streamlining the supply chain, reducing road miles and cutting CO2 emissions, allowing their goods to pass directly from our packhouse to a regional distribution centre.

“By minimising the breaks in the supply chain, both the client and the end user can enjoy significant cost benefits, as well as the assurance that the perishable goods have been handled by experts in the field – fully trained and highly experienced in understanding the sensitivities associated with the packing and transport of perishable products.

“As per the overall company ethos of investing in technology to ensure the business is future perfect, we are continuing to monitor new developments in the packing sector and our packhouse manager visited Fruit Logistica in Berlin this month, to review the latest equipment and innovations entering the market.”
