Food logistics specialist ACS&T has been accredited to the highest level – AA – across all its UK sites by the BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution.
ACS&T successfully passed the rigorous BRC audit at all its locations in Grimsby, Wolverhampton, Tewkesbury and Scarborough, with the Scarborough site at Seamer being rated AA+, which is given to sites where the audit is unannounced.
ACS&T’s Managing Director Malcolm Johnstone said: “We are delighted to have achieved the highest level of certification across all our sites.
“This is a tremendous testimony to the commitment of managers and staff across all levels of the business to continuous improvement.
“At ACS&T we never rest on our laurels and this is proof of the policy of continuous improvement that drives our organisation forward.”
The BRC Global Standard is universally considered as a benchmark guarantee of quality, safety and operational performance for the UK retail industry.
ACS&T was one of the first temperature controlled logistics companies to gain the BRC Storage & Distribution Standard in 2008 and has consistently achieved accreditation every year since.
The assessments cover hygiene, food safety, environmental standards, operating systems, traceability, product flow and handling requirements, which provide a benchmark for best practices within storage and distribution.
ACS&T also holds ISO9001 and ISO14001 certifications.
