BRC ‘AA’ grade retained and 100% compliant

FC Cartons once again celebrates its British Retail Consortium (BRC) – Packaging & Packaging Materials ‘AA’ grade certification.

We are pleased to announce that we have continued our British Retail Consortium (BRC) – Packaging & Packaging Materials standard at the prestigious ‘AA’ grade level. Director of fc cartons Debra Woodyatt commented:

“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% compliant.

We’re so pleased with the outcome of our Audit, obviously with an ‘AA’ grade last year the pressure was on to retain it, I was thrilled with our 100%, it just reinforces the team work ethics that we all have and every one of our staff understands the importance of the external accreditation to our business. It’s an exciting time at fc and with this Audit under our belts we will now look forward to seeing our expansion plans coming together this autumn”.

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 BRC – Packaging & Packaging Materials standard and attained it 5 years ago. Over this past 5 years, fc cartons have 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 ‘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 another successful year.”

Some of the very positive feedback we received on our certification:

“Congratulations FC! Well done to the team”
“Cracking effort Debra, well done!”
“Congratulations, wow 100%!”
“Fantastic, well done everyone”
“Well done Debra, great news!”
