What is BRC?

BRC is an abbreviation for British Retail Consortium. The BRC is a union which was founded by British Retailers and aims to define and frame requirements and guidelines for food and packaging safety.

Objectives of the BRC standards for packaging and packaging materials

The BRC standards in the area of packaging and packaging materials aim to create a common basis for food and packaging safety. They are supposed to support the consumer protection and companies with the implementation of legally defined standards. The BRC standards are also acknowledged by the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) and are inherited by many companies.
