BRC ‘AA’ grade retained
For a fourth year in succession Team FC are celebrating its British Retail Consortium (BRCGS) – Packaging & Packaging Materials ‘AA’ grade certification.
We are pleased to announce that we have continued our British Retail Consortium (BRCGS) – 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’. We’re so pleased with the outcome of our Audit; obviously with an ‘AA’ grade for the last three years the pressure was on to retain it. I was thrilled with our ‘AA’ Grade, 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 the ‘Hub’ our production facility fully operational, we can now concentrate on making further improvements in all areas of our business which will enhance the quality of service we can deliver to our customers’ ”.
We continually work on all aspects of our business, we believe we have a comprehensive accreditation portfolio – when you add our ISO and PEFC accreditations, Team fc have ISO certification for ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 standards with Certification Body Alcumus ISOQAR. Team fc have invested in this rigorous assessment process to demonstrate our commitment to all Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety aspects of our business. When you add our PEFC Chain of Custody certification you can see the meticulous standards we have set ourselves and we believe this gives our customers’ the confidence in not only the service we deliver but the environment in which we finish their products.
Managing Director of fc cartons David Woodyatt added:
“You can imagine how pleased we all were when it was announced that we had achieved ‘AA’ Grade. A massive thank you to everyone with a special mention for our BRCGS compliance team”
Debra Woodyatt, Director of Finance & Systems told us:
“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 nine 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.”
