Food Safety Grade AA+ for Ma­gro Broth­ers of Gozo

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Dur­ing the last week of Oc­to­ber, Ma­gro Broth­ers (Foods) was in­spected by the Bri­tish Re­tail Con­sor­tium Global Stan­dard for Food Safety (Is­sue 7).

BRC is a lead­ing safety and qual­ity cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­gramme, used by over 23,000 cer­tifi­cated sup­pli­ers in 123 coun­tries, with cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is­sued through a world­wide net­work of ac­cred­ited cer­ti­fi­ca­tion bod­ies. The Stan­dards guar­an­tee the stan­dard­iza­tion of qual­ity, food safety and op­er­a­tional cri­te­ria and en­sure that man­u­fac­tur­ers ful­fill their le­gal obli­ga­tions and pro­vide pro­tec­tion for the end con­sumer.

In to­day’s re­tail in­dus­try, BRC Global Stan­dards are now of­ten a fun­da­men­tal re­quire­ment es­pe­cially when prod­ucts are ex­ported to dif­fer­ent coun­tries world­wide. These stan­dards go be­yond the food safety re­quire­ments of the Euro­pean Union.

The au­dit is car­ried out an­nu­ally and since the past five years a more chal­leng­ing unan­nounced au­dit was in­tro­duced to check the readi­ness and con­tin­ued ob­ser­va­tion of the stan­dards by man­u­fac­tur­ers through a sur­prise au­dit.

Ev­ery year, Ma­gro Broth­ers have al­ways achieved ex­cel­lent re­sults, how­ever, this year the com­pany achieved the high­est rat­ing with a Grade AA+ re­sult.

This reaf­firms the ded­i­ca­tion of the com­pany to im­prove qual­ity and puts Ma­gro Broth­ers at the top of this pres­ti­gious global list with only a hand­ful of man­u­fac­tur­ers pos­sess­ing such a high grade.

The suc­cess of this cru­cial au­dit is a merit to all em­ploy­ees for their end­less ef­forts and team­work. For this the man­age­ment is sin­cerely grate­ful and con­grat­u­lates them all on their ex­cel­lent achieve­ment.
