BRC Food and Packaging System Certification Consultancy in India

In 1998 the British Retail Consortium (BRC), responding to industry needs, developed and introduced the BRC Food Technical Standard to be used to evaluate manufacturers of retailers' own brand food products. Punyam offers BRC certification consultancy in India for food and packaging system. It is designed to assist retailers and brand owners produce food products of consistent safety and quality and assist with their 'due diligence' defence, should they be subject to a prosecution by the enforcement authorities. Under European Union (EU) food laws, retailers and brand owners have a legal responsibility for their brands.

BRC Food Standard was published first, and then the BRC published the first issue of the Packaging Standard in 2002, followed by Consumer Products Standard in August 2003, and finally the BRC Global Standard - Storage and Distribution, in August 2006. In 2009, the BRC partnered with the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) to develop the Global Standard for Consumer Products- North America edition. Each of these Standards is regularly reviewed, revised and updated at least every 3 years, after extensive consultation with a wide range of stakeholders.
