The contract packing division of the Alexir Partnership has manufacturing facilities in Sussex.
The standard makes the company compliant with the latest version 7 of the standard for food safety, management systems, manufacturing and quality management practices.
ACP can now offer customers all the necessary reassurances in respect of dried food co-manufacturing.
The BRC Global Standard for Food Packaging certification is viewed as a benchmark of quality, safety and legality, and has been recognised and adopted by retailers, manufacturers and packaging businesses worldwide.
Marcus Madgwick, ACP’s quality assurance manager, said: “We are delighted to receive the AA grade in the BRC Accreditation. It has always been important to us to strive for the very best in everything we do. We are pleased that we can give all our customers a deep-seated confidence in our work and our facilities. Well done to all the team involved.”
The co-packing division has invested heavily this year, having set in motion some expansion plans, and added extensively to their automated, semi-automated and manual lines.
These include high-speed flow wrapping, doy packing, blending, pot and sachet filling, labelling, sleeving and assortment packing of ambient, chilled and frozen food products.
With full BRC and Organic accreditations they are now able to offer full contract manufacturing solutions in a total production site of 55,000ft².
The recent revamp of the new facilities has included a conversion of a segregated nut production facility solely focused on processing products that contain nuts, including cereals and snacks. The existing facilities provide nut-free, nut-trace and allergen-control packing services.
