BBF, the UK’s leading manufacturer of own label, licensed and branded ambient cakes and desserts, has received the highest possible AA* rating from BRC Global Standards following a recent audit of its Blackburn manufacturing site.
In addition to its AA* rated Blackburn site, BBF has four other manufacturing facilities, all of which have been highly certified by BRC Global Standards. BBF’s Bradford and Hull bakeries have also received AA* ratings and its Shadsworth and Poland sites are rated A*.
BRC Global Standards is a leading certification organisation which guarantees the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria. The scheme, used by over 26,000 certified suppliers across 130 countries, provides protection to the end user by ensuring manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations.
Jonathan Lill, CEO of BBF, commented:
“We are delighted that our ongoing commitment to quality and safety has been recognised by the BRC. Receiving the highest possible rating for three out of our five sites is testament to the work we do and helps to further demonstrate our exemplary standards to the major retailers that we serve”.
“The BRC audit program requires us to prepare for an inspection that could happen at any time. While this could be a challenge for some, it is an approach that we welcome as we pride ourselves on ensuring our manufacturing facilities are in exceptional condition all year round.”
