A Commitment to Quality – BRC Certification 2021

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 Certification assures our customres that the products we provide are of high quality and comply with all regulations. Clients relying on Rocket Industrial 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 to guide our policies and procedures for how we procure, receive, store, handle and ship products.

Rocket Industrial also remains current with new regulations and industry best practices through continuous training, feedback from our quality partners at NSF and by habitually reassessing our systems, policies and procedures to enhance and strengthen the security of our supply chain.

“We at Rocket Industrial do not settle for the status quo. That’s why we decided to continue with our BRC Recertification and established an “A” rating in 2021! We will always continue to push ourselves, and the industry, forward to provide the safest supply chain possible and that will undoubtedly set us apart from our competition. We are here to show the world that Rocket is committed to being a leader in food packaging safety for many years to come!
