Friars Pride gain BRC Certification for Oil Facility

Friars Pride has gained the BRC Certification for our Oil Filling Facility. The BRC Food Safety Standard is a leading global brand recognised by thousands of customers worldwide, and has certificated over 18,000 suppliers in over 100 countries around the globe. It was also the first Food Safety Standard to be benchmarked by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). The GFSI is an industry-driven initiative providing thought leadership and guidance on food safety management systems necessary for safety along the supply chain. This work is accomplished through collaboration between the world's leading food safety experts from retail, manufacturing and food service companies, as well as international organisations, governments, academia and service providers to the global food industry.

Friars Pride packs around 80,000 litres of oil per week in our bespoke oil filling facility. Our equipment has been specifically designed to fill both 20 litre returnable drums for food service customers, 20 litre & 15 litre bottle in a box and 1000 litre pods for their manufacturing customers.

Transport and Warehouse Manager, Martin Sheffield said, “We (Friars Pride) are delighted to have gained BRC Storage and Distribution Certification. BRC is the elite food and safety standard and to be recognised by them for our oil facility is a huge achievement”.
