Middleton Foods is celebrating after its main site and its bespoke gluten free production facility both achieved the highest possible AA+ certification, following recent unannounced BRC Global Standards (BRCGS) and Gluten Free Certification Program (GFCP) audits.
The sites in Willenhall, West Midlands, manufacturer a range of products for the fish and chip industry including batter mixes, curries, gravies and chicken breadings, as well as pre-mixes for the foodservice and bakery sectors.
Speaking of the certification, Paul Stanley, foodservice manager, Middleton Foods, comments:
“I’m extremely proud of the AA+ certifications achieved following the first unannounced audits of both our main site and also of our gluten free site. There’s no higher recognition than this, and I’m absolutely delighted for the entire Middleton Foods team – the status are testament to their commitment and dedication to maintaining such excellent standards of food safety. Everyone within the business should take enormous pride in these fantastic achievements.
“As the demand for gluten free foods continues to grow, our extensive portfolio of products enables our customers to cater for an increasing number of consumers who have specific dietary requirements. Food safety is critical, and expectations placed on food industry manufacturers and suppliers are high – rightly so. The BRCGS grading system reflects food hygiene practices, and standards are extremely thorough. Receiving such a high-grade status for food safety, from a globally renowned certification, gives us an internationally recognised mark of food quality, safety and responsibility. It assures our customers of our approach to the quality of our processes and food safety management.”
