We are once again authorised to produce digital labels and films for flexible pouches that are suitable for all applications including those in the coveted ‘high risk’ category.

Our fourth annual audit took place last month and once again we have hit the mark by achieving the highest standards.

We created a British Retail Consortium approved zone in 2005 in our current manufacturing facility and since then we’ve moved quickly up the ranks to achieve the very highest standards last year.

BRC standards are tough – let’s be honest here.

But it is for a good reason. We can proudly ensure that our product quality, safety and operational criteria are traceable, legal and thorough, which provides the ultimate protection for end consumers. 

Over 3,500 suppliers in over 80 countries have chosen to be certificated to BRC Global Standards and the criteria taps in to pretty much every manufacturing process and people category including Senior Management commitment, hazard and risk, safety and quality management, buildings and equipment, product and process control, and personnel.

Elaine Fletcher, our Internal Audit Expert said: “We’ve worked hard again this year and once again the team have achieved the highest standards. Myself and all of my colleagues involved in any BRC work are 100% BRC competent and it’s great to know that we all fully understand and appreciate its importance.”

Managing Director Simon Smith said: “Our QA team don’t miss a trick and the lead taken by our Internal Audit Expert Elaine Fletcher and QA Manager Charlotte Williams means that once again we can produce AA* rated labels and films for stand-up pouches with quality, legality and hygiene at the top level.”

If your client requests that their product needs to be BRC standards, or you as a business need this standard yourself, then don’t be afraid to ask your packaging supplier how they comply.

If you choose CS Labels as your packaging partner, you can be safe in the knowledge that any digital printing and finishing of PP/PE/Paper adhesive labels, PP/PET/PE films for production of stand-up pouches and digital sachets for the food and other industries are officially produced at a grade AA* standard.
