FC Cartons once again celebrates its British Retail Consortium (BRC) – Packaging & Packaging Materials ‘AA’ grade certification.
“We have said many times before that we are always looking for continual improvement across all aspects of our business – from process requirements, to warehousing space and now we’ve achieved another BRC Audit with ‘AA’ and 100% compliance.
We’re so pleased with the outcome of our Audit, obviously with an ‘AA’ grade last year with 100% compliance the pressure was on to retain it. I was thrilled with our 100%, it just reinforces the team’s positive work ethic that we all have and every one of our staff understands the importance of external accreditation to our business. It’s an exciting time at fc and with this Audit, under our belt, and our new production facility fully operational, we can now concentrate on making further improvements in all areas of our business which will further enhance the quality of service we can deliver to our customers”.
Managing Director of fc cartons David Woodyatt added:
“With just three months to the Audit, we moved all production to our new facility, right up until the last day of the Audit we were concerned that we may have missed something in our interpretation of the standard when we had applied it to the new production area. So you can imagine how pleased we all were when it was announced that we had achieved 100% on top of a huge move and refit, a massive thank you to everyone with a special mention for our BRC compliance team”
Just one part of this continual improvement is the Quality Management System which provides guidance and a framework for moving forward under the BRC banner. fc cartons first applied for and attained the BRC – Packaging & Packaging Materials standard over six years ago. Over this period of time, fc cartons has improved their grading to achieve the ‘AA’ grade through great teamwork, clear communication and a desire to offer the very best in customer service.
Debra Woodyatt continued:
“Following the auditors comments, which included references such as ‘Nice friendly people’ and ‘a good facility’ we would like to take this opportunity to thank the fc cartons team and our customers for supporting us through yet another successful year.”
