Stapleton’s Achieves Grade “A” on BRC Assessment

Grade A BRC CertificationStapleton-Spence Packing Company receives Grade “A” in BRC assessment at their Gridley, California food processing and packaging plant. The grade of “A” is the highest attainable level.

The BRC Global Standards are a leading global safety and quality certification program, used throughout the world by over 17,000 certificated suppliers in 90 countries through a network of over 80 accredited and BRC recognized Certification Bodies.  Many UK, North American and many European retailers, and brand owners will only consider business with suppliers who have gained certification to the appropriate BRC Global Standard.

The scope of the BRC assessment at Stapleton’s covers receiving, storage, processing, packaging, and transport of dried fruit (i.e. prunes) and juice products. BRC best practices include how a company manages foreign body detection, pest control, complaint handling, and product recall. The BRC process is a way for Stapleton’s to demonstrate the quality, safety and legality of their products and services.

Preparing for and attaining a high rating is no easy task. The third-party auditing supervisor overseeing the assessment commented “I was impressed by the quality of the documentation that was submitted by the Gridley team [Stapleton’s]. I will go so far as to say it represents some of the best work I have seen since I began performing BRC assessments. Nice job!! ”

Stapleton’s is committed to food safety from farm to table, strictly adhering to certified manufacturing and quality assurance processes. Food certifications include USDA, kosher, and organic. Stapleton’s processing plant is GFSI compliant, BRC Certified (Grade A), and has a Gold Silliker Food Safety rating. Additional certification information can be found on the Certifications page.
