(PRWEB UK) 14 June 2016
Alexir Co-Packers (ACP), the contract packing division of the Alexir Partnership, are pleased to announce that their co-manufacturing facilities in Sussex have achieved an AA grade BRC (British Retail Consortium). With this standard ACP can demonstrate that it is compliant with the latest version 7 of the standard for food safety, management systems, manufacturing and quality management practices. Consequently, they are able to offer all their customers, and potential customers, all the necessary reassurances in respect of dried food co-manufacturing.
The BRC Global Standard for Food Packaging certification is viewed as a benchmark of quality, safety and legality, and has been recognised and adopted by retailers, manufacturers and packaging businesses worldwide.
Marcus Madgwick, Quality Assurance Manager, said, “We are delighted to receive the AA grade in the BRC Accreditation. It has always been important to us to strive for the very best in everything we do. We are pleased that we can give all our customers a deep-seated confidence in our work and our facilities. Well done to all the team involved.”
The year 2016 is proving to be a very exciting one for ACP. Not only have they set in motion some very exciting expansion plans, they have also added extensively to their automated, semi-automated and manual lines. These include high-speed flow wrapping, doy packing, blending, pot and sachet filling, labelling, sleeving and assortment packing of ambient, chilled and frozen food products. With full BRC and Organic accreditations they are now able to offer full contract manufacturing solutions in a total production site of 55,000ft². The recent revamp of the new facilities has included a conversion of a segregated nut production facility solely focused on processing products that contain nuts, including cereals and snacks. Their existing facilities provide nut-free, nut-trace and allergen-control packing services.
