The BRCGS Packaging Materials Global Standard helps a site or operation to demonstrate they are providing products that are quality assured, legally compliant, and authentic.
The first to be recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), BRCGS Packaging Materials is now in its 6th edition and has become the global industry benchmark. It is not only used by food packaging producers but also by producers of packaging for all applications, across the supply chain.
The standard is applicable for operations that:
Produce packaging materials for conversion or printing
Supply packaging materials from stock where additional product processing or repacking occurs
Manufacture and supply of other unconverted or semi-converted and used or incorporated.
