What is BRCGS Packaging Certification?

The BRCGS Packaging Certification is a leading global brand and the first Standard in the world to be recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GSFI) benchmarking committee. It’s why over 3,000 suppliers in over 80 countries worldwide have chosen to be certificated by BRCGS Global Standards.

Who needs BRCGS Packaging Certification?

Manufacturers of all types of packaging and packaging materials for all uses.

Benefits of BRCGS Packaging

Many food retailers and manufacturers only accept suppliers with BRCGS certification. Following a successful audit, the capability of suppliers is documented by listing and registration on the BRCGS database, in effect raising the profile of the individual supplier. In addition, certification leads to image enhancement, reduces risks and warranty claims and helps contribute to overall food safety.

TUV USA, INC. has auditors who are qualified in several fields, allowing TUV USA to offer effective and low-cost combined audits (e.g. in association with other management systems/food safety systems).
