BRC Food

British Retail Consortium Global Standard for Food Safety’, shortly ‘BRC’ is a renown international standard in the domain of food safety and quality in the food industry.

It sets the requirements that quality verification at corporate level needs to comply with in order to guarantee the highest possible product safety and customer satisfaction. As is the case with most (inter)national standards and systems to guarantee quality, food safety is managed in accordance with the HACCP-principles (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) which implies listing of any product danger and the elaboration of prevention measures per listed danger for further avoidance, elimination or reduction up to an acceptable level.

Auto Control System (ACS)

Any company in the food sector is legally required to set up an auto control system (ACS) in accordance with HACCP principles (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) to secure safety, quality and traceability of food.

Should the country in which the food company is located have a so-called sector guide or hygiene code, the food company has the possibility to have its observance certified. This is the case for Belgium. As all our production sites have had a BRC certificate for years, an ACS certificate for the Belgian mills of Dossche Mills was easy to obtain.
