Westland remain only UK bird food manufacturer to achieve BRC

Westland Horticulture remains the only UK bird food manufacturer to achieve accreditation from The British Retail Consortium.

Westland?s Driffield facility has retained its ?A? grade status from the BRC for the fifth consecutive year, making its products a safe bet for both retailers and consumers.

The continued success follows a two day annual audit of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Driffield, which produces the leading brands Nature?s Feast, Peckish and Bucktons. The facility surpassed expectations across a stringent set of criteria, covering everything from processes, hygiene and safety, to the full traceability of ingredients.

The BRC award is testament to Westland?s commitment to excellence, quality produce and highly trained staff. In addition to the status, Westland can also provide significant support to retaillers through investments in media and marketing. This includes in-depth customer insight which has led to more effective product positioning across all bird food brands.

James Farnsworth, General Manager at Westland said: ?We are delighted to remain the only UK bird food manufacturer to achieve the BRC accreditation. The BRC is much more than just an accreditation for us. It?s about creating a culture in which everyone in the company recognises the importance of product safety and the quality of our products.

?The status, which we have achieved at Grade ?A? for the fifth year running, acts as an assurance to our customers that all our products, have been produced safely by experienced and professional staff, to the highest standards, using the best ingredients.

The BRC is a leading trade association providing certificates for manufacturers who can prove they implement best practice across their manufacturing processes.
