BRC certification indicates that the company’s manufacturing meets internationally recognized food safety standards.
GFSI was created to provide leadership and guidance on food safety management systems for the food supply chain. BRC is a leading safety and quality certification program for food manufacturing, packaging, storage and distribution, and is used by more than 22,000 certified suppliers in 123 countries. GFSI objectives include:
- Reducing food safety risks by delivering equivalence and convergence between effective food safety management systems.
- Aiding cost management in the global food system by eliminating redundancy and improving operational efficiency, developing competencies and capacity building in food safety to create consistent and effective global food systems
- Providing a unique international stakeholder platform for collaboration, knowledge exchange and networking
Since earning the certification, Three Dog Bakery has resumed in-house production for several previously co-packed treats, begun private label production for current customers and earned new international business in the UK with Pets at Home.
“GFSI certification is a critical investment for any company attempting to meet and sustain healthy and safe standards for its patrons,” said Three Dog Bakery President Scott Ragan. “Considered a premier stamp of approval for pet food manufacturers, the considerable investment in both time and financial resources signals Three Dog Bakery’s commitment to our customers now and well into the future.”
