BRC Global Standards has awarded the highly coveted rating of ‘AA’ to Rapid Action Packaging (RAP), which designs and produces sustainable food-to-go packaging.
It is the most recognised, independently audited standard for food packaging manufacture.
Upgraded from its previous ‘A’ rating, the company received this accolade because of its high standards of quality, safety and hygiene and as acknowledgement for having the materials, premises and processes to maintain these values.
RAP operations director John McDermot said: “Having the BRC ‘A’ rating for a number of years gave our customers assurance that our products are safe and suitable for use.
“However, we strive to achieve the highest criteria in safety and hygiene to underline our customer commitment and therefore implemented a number of changes to realise this.
“It’s a fantastic team effort and as a result we have improved safety, reduced production waste and set further goals for 2017 and beyond”.
