JB Foods gets top grade in BRC Global Standards for Storage and Distribution

Midlothian-based JB Foods has been awarded the highest-level AA grade in BRC Global Standards for Storage and Distribution.

A Caterforce member, JB Foods specialises in delivering to restaurants and other caterers, but it also serves retailers and consumers. Established in 1963, the family-run business has a fleet of over 30 multi-temperature vehicles servicing the breadth of Scotland and the north-east of England.

The BRC Global Standards for Storage and Distribution is specifically designed for logistics operations dealing with food, packaging and consumer products, and is designed to reflect best practice.

The AA grade provides the ultimate guarantee of product safety, integrity, quality and legality throughout the storage and distribution process and will provide JB Foods’ customers with the peace of mind that they are receiving the highest level of service.

The in-depth audit took place in December and covered elements such as organisational structure, responsibility and management, hazard and risk analysis, product safety and quality management, site and building standards, vehicle operating standards, facility management, good operating practices, personnel, wholesale, cross-docking and e-commerce.

JB Foods’ commercial director Charlotte Thompson said: “An award of this standard is a monumental accomplishment considering the challenges that we have faced during the pandemic. It is a true testament to the hard work of our fantastic team led by our operational compliance & quality manager Amanda Balloch. This award has provided a welcome boost to us all.”
