The BRC and what it means at Johnston Logistics UK

One year on from gaining BRC accreditation, we take a look at what this certification is and how it can benefit the supply chain and customer experience.

Originally introduced in 2006, the BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution provides the essential certification link between the range of BRC Global Standards Manufacturing Standards and the end user, such as the retailer or the food service company.

Developed by multi-stakeholder groups including industry representatives from certification bodies, food service organisations and retailers, the BRC Global Standard is designed to reflect best practice and facilitate a process of continuous improvement through a well-designed risk-based product safety management system.

The objective of the BRC Global Standard is to ensure that product integrity during the storage and distribution is maintained, and that customer confidence is upheld through audit and certification. The third edition of the BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution was published in 2016.

Claire Turrell, Compliance Manager at Johnston Logistics UK said, “The BRC accreditation allows us to demonstrate our commitment to product safety and legality, ensuring that we fulfil our legal obligation and provide protection and peace of mind for our customers.  We are passionate about continually improving our processes and systems in place to provide the best level of service to our customers.”

Johnston Logistics UK can offer a flexible, scalable solution on its 130 acre site that has 640,000 sq ft of warehousing.  We operate excise bonded and customs warehousing in Norfolk and along with our location at Snetterton, just off the A11 on the Cambridge to Norwich Tech Corridor, we are ideally placed to help those food and drink producers looking to export their goods abroad through the East Coast ports.
