A Commitment to Quality – BRC Certification

Rocket Industrial is committed to owning our place in the food industry as a preferred packaging supplier of many leading cheese and meat processors in the Midwest. To confirm our commitment to safety and quality, our Wausau facility has again achieved BRC certification.

What is BRC?

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) is the leading trade association for the UK food industry. Although the BRC food safety standard began in the UK, it is now recognized as a global standard and considered a total quality management benchmark. The objective of the BRC Global Standard is to ensure that product integrity during storage and distribution are maintained, and that customer confidence is upheld through annual audit and certification.

The BRC Global Standard is divided into eight sections, for which Rocket received the highest grade of AA overall during its most recent audit:

1. Management’s commitment and continuous improvement

2. Hazard and risk analysis

3. Quality management system

4. Site and building standards

5. Vehicle operating standards

6. Facility management

7. Good operating practices

8. Personnel

How does this certification benefit our customers?

BRC Storage and Distribution Standards are very rigorous and very few packaging suppliers are certified to this standard. Certification assures our customers that the products we are providing come from companies that are reaching high levels of quality and complying with all regulations. Clients relying on Rocket for food contact packaging can expect products that follow a secure audited BRC certified supply chain that follows the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) scheme.

“We at Rocket Industrial do not settle for the status quo. That’s why we decided to push ourselves to achieve this globally recognized certification that will undoubtedly set us apart from our competition and show the world that Rocket is committed to being a leader in food packaging safety. ”
