About the BRC standard

The British Retail Consortium has developed and implemented the BRC Food Technical Standard, which is designed to be used in assessing the labelled products of retailers. Its purpose is to help retailers and brand owners to produce food products of equal quality and safety. The standard has become invaluable for the organizations working in this sector. It was and still is considered to be the benchmark of good practice in the food industry. This feature and its application outside the United Kingdom (UK) helped the standard to evolve into a global standard used not just to assess retailer suppliers, but also serve as a framework based on which many companies have developed their supplier assessment programs and brand production.
