Wipak UK Achieves Best Result Possible in Global Standard for Quality Excellence
Wipak UK has maintained its prestigious ‘AA’ BRCGS quality excellence accreditation with no non-conformances raised – the best possible result. The BRCGS Standard for Packaging Materials provides a robust framework for all types of packaging manufacturers to assist them in the production of safe packaging materials and to manage product quality to meet customers’ requirements while maintaining legal compliance. It certifies the highest standards in hazard and risk management systems, safety and quality management, site standards, product and process control, personnel and senior management commitment.
“As a trusted packaging supplier to a wide-range of food manufacturers across the UK and Europe, we are thrilled to be recognised for our ongoing quality excellence by maintaining an ‘AA’ grade certification for Packaging Materials,” said Angela Warren, Systems and Compliance Manager at Wipak UK. “This is the second consecutive year we have achieved an AA grade with no non-conformances and no observations raised.”
During the scheduled visit earlier this month, the auditor praised Wipak UK for its high levels of hygiene, 5S and machine cleanliness.
“This is a brilliant result which demonstrates our commitment to aligning our standards with those of our customers,” said Angela. “It also gives them the confidence and peace of mind that they are working alongside a business which continues to operate at the highest possible quality standards.”
Building on the very successful audit results of the last two years, Wipak UK is preparing for what will be its first unannounced audit in 2023.
