A Peterlee-based leading supplier of packaging solutions has been awarded the BRC Global Standard’s highest grade following an extensive audit process. 

Encore Packaging Solutions, that produces solid board boxes, direct mail packaging and e-commerce solutions, as well as corrugated packaging, hopes the impressive accreditation will enable the Company to expand its services. 

The BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials, the first packaging standard in the world to be recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmarking committee, has been designed to assist in the production of safe packaging materials as well as managing product quality to meet customers’ requirements. 

Laura Croisdale, group environmental & quality manager for Encore Packaging Solutions, said: “To achieve AA grade in our first audit by BRC is a fantastic achievement and a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees. 

“Food packaging is a service we have looked to grow for some time now, and we are confident that the BRC standard will allow us to do so. We always strive to meet the needs of our customers, so to be recognised for our commitment to quality and safe packaging, will give them confidence that they are working with a trusted, reputable provider.” 

In line with BRC Global Standard’s requirements, Encore will have its next audit in 12 months.
