BRCGS is an international Food Safety Management Systems standard and is one of the GFSI recognized certification schemes which is an important consideration because many major manufacturers, marketing groups, restaurants and retailers require a GFSI recognized certification. BRCGS contains requirements for food processors to follow to build an effective food safety management system. The requirements of the standard address the key elements that must be in place to ensure production of a safe product.
