The company was founded in 1996 by retailers who wanted to harmonise food safety standards across the supply chain. Today we are globally recognised across both food and non-food categories and operate the most rigorous third party certification scheme of its type. Our message is clear, we have the most rigorous schemes and the highest trained auditors giving you the best results possible.
BRCGS is a market-leading global brand that helps build confidence in the supply chain. Our Global Standards for Food Safety, Packaging and Packaging Materials, Storage and Distribution, Consumer Products, Agents and Brokers, Retail, and Gluten Free set the benchmark for good manufacturing practice, and help provide assurance to customers that your products are safe, legal and of high quality.
In 2016 BRCGS was acquired by the LGC Group, the leading international life sciences measurement and testing company. This is the next stage of the strategic transition from being a standards owner to a brand and consumer protection organisation with a range of products and services to help its customers deal with the challenges of producing safe, high quality products for the end consumer on a global basis.
