We manufacture rigid plastic containers for the yogurt, ice cream and like sectors. We are certified AIB as well as FDA/IMS (International Milk Shippers).

 

I have very little knowledge of BRC standards and need an answer to the following question: According to BRC, should we be considered a high or low risk supplier?

 

(BRC 3.5.1.2 or other clauses?)

 

Thank you very much!

 

James

Thank you Simon, 

 

Is it because its food packaging or is it because we are not BRC/GSFI certified?

Hi Tamale,

 

High risk because your plastic containers are direct food contact packaging.

 

The cartons/bags you deliver your plastic containers in are not direct food contact packaging and would be low risk.

Simon
