What is the British Retail Consortium (BRC)?

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) is a leading global brand and consumer protection organization. The BRC provides a framework to manage product safety, integrity, legality and quality, and the operational controls for these criteria in the food and food ingredient manufacturing, processing and packing industry for both human grade food and pet food. Although the BRC food safety standard began in the UK, but it is now recognized as a global standard.
