The Sherwood Group retain BRC AA print accreditation

Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

The Sherwood Group are pleased to announce that we have retained the highest BRC AA print certification, from The British Retail Consortium.

Following a rigorous inspection of our manufacturing facility in Nottingham, the Sherwood Group achieved a ‘High Hygiene Category’ certification of the BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials.

BRC AA print certification

BRC is a leading brand and consumer protection organisation, which guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria and ensure that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer. The ‘High Hygiene Category’ requirements relate to the production of packaging that comes into direct contact with food or other hygiene sensitive products.

The Sherwood Group have been producing food packaging since 2009 and achieved their first BRC accreditation in 2010. To meet the requirements of the standard, the Group yet again excelled expectations across a stringent set of criteria for accreditation.

The principal requirements are the adoption and implementation of a Hazard and Risk Management system, a documented and effective quality management system and control of factory environmental standards, products, processes and personnel.

Graham Garrod, Operations Director commented: “The BRC accreditation gives our customers confidence in their product safety and consistency of quality. Over the years we have gone from strength to strength, building a company culture that places product safety and quality as a priority. The achievement of an ‘AA’ grade further demonstrates Sherwood’s commitment to the packaging industry”.

In May 2018, the Sherwood Group welcomed its strategic partner, KMD Company, into its manufacturing site in Nottingham and widened their range of products and services to luxury food packaging, point of sale and innovative packaging design.

The BRC award is a testament of the Group’s commitment to service, quality, exemplary procedures and high quality staff.
