Digby, Nova Scotia – Consumers should never have to worry about the safety of their food. They should always feel completely confident that what they purchase and eat is safe and meets the quality indicated on its packaging.
This is the purpose behind BRCGS, a company founded to help build confidence in the global food supply chain and assure customers that their food products are safe, legal, and of high quality.
Gidney Fisheries has long-prided itself on delivering the highest quality lobster products worldwide. That is why it so validating to have recently achieved A Grade accreditation to the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety.
“We’ve met the most rigorous global standards for food safety verified by third-party auditors. With BRCGS accreditation we now have trusted verification that our lobster products are of the highest quality, safety, and integrity,” says Barry C. Gidney, CEO.
BRCGS for Food Safety is comprehensive with its standards covering the implementation of a food safety plan (HACCP), site standards for cleanliness and other factory controls, product testing, hygiene practices, and a commitment by senior management to maintain a food safety culture.
“I am so pleased with our management team and all employees who worked together during the meticulous process of BRCGS accreditation,” comments Sean Marsden, President and General Manager.
Gidney Fisheries anticipates explosive growth in 2021 in both retail and food service around the world with live and frozen HPP lobster.
