British Retail Consortium
In 2000, Stella Polaris was the first prawn factory in the world to be certified by the British Retail Consortium standard for food production. BRC is perhaps the most demanding quality standard available for food production. Stella Polaris undergoes annual quality inspections from Det Norske Veritas (DNV) and currently has an AA rating from BRC.
BRCGS’ Standards guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria and ensure that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer. Certification to BRCGS’ Standards is now often a fundamental requirement of leading retailers, manufacturers and food service organisations.
