12 April 2011 - Sonneveld achieved quality standard: BRC Unannounced (Corporate News)

Sonneveld was subjected to an unannounced BRC audit this week. Sonneveld once again achieved the BRC certificate and the highest possible A status. An unannounced audit is rewarded with a star on the applicable certificate: A*.
The BRC Global Standard for Food Safety, often simply abbreviated to BRC Food, is an important food safety standard.

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) has offered companies the opportunity to opt for an unannounced audit in addition to the normal certification project since July 2008. It's estimated not even half of the companies with a BRC certificate have opted for this. The Sonneveld Group B.V. from Papendrecht, producer and supplier of baking ingredients, are one of the first 3 companies in the Dutch food industry to have achieved this. "Sonneveld may well be the first company to have realised an A* status and we are naturally very proud of this", according to Maarten Boonstra, Sonneveld's Quality and Care Manager. "It goes without saying that we feel it's of the utmost importance to realise this certificate, but we see BRC more as a means to an end. Plus an unannounced BRC certificate will provide our customers with a more realistic image of the actual situation within our company." Sonneveld was subjected to its first unannounced BRC audit this week.

The BRC certification stands for ‘British Retail Consortium' and is a quality standard for manufacturers of food products. This standard now consists of an extensive package of food safety, production and environmental quality requirements. The certificate is recognised and acknowledged by many retail organisations. Opting for an unannounced BRC certification allows Sonneveld to demonstrate that quality and food safety play an important role in its total operational management. Sonneveld uses the following standard: The organisation must satisfy the highest possible food safety requirements at any given time.
