Frank Dale, a producer of premium frozen and chilled occasion food is celebrating being awarded what is regarded as ‘the highest possible rating for food safety and compliance’ in the form of the British Retail Consortium Global Standards (BRCGS) AA+ certification.
Renowned as the benchmark for best practice in food safety, quality and responsibility, the BRC Double ‘AA’ grade was awarded to the Norfolk-based brand following an unscheduled inspection last month, covering the ready meals and sandwiches; ready to eat desserts and bakery product categories.
Managing Director Edward Miles explained why certification is so important for the brand that features in professional kitchens nationwide.
“This rating represents the gold standard for food production and not only gives our customers complete peace of mind that we are consistently compliant and meeting high standards, but it also enables us to monitor our own performance and identify any opportunities for improvement,” he said. “Having this accreditation assures our customers of optimal quality in everything we do and is an invaluable business asset. The AA+ rating confirms to anyone working with us that that every item that leaves our factory is clean, has been produced in accordance with the most stringent safety protocols and is fully traceable.”
