Is anybody aware of any WRITTEN standards for construction of new food factory in UK?.

 

 

BRC standard I have (very vague) and I know retailers also have guidelines, but is there anything else in the public domain?.

 

 

There appear to be a plethora of factory design consultants on the internet so guessing the answer is probably not?....

Yes, your local building code/requirements

 

When it comes to sanitary design, that's another kettle of fish altogether

 

google that and you'll find scores of real information, not consultants looking to line their pockets

Just a few to start

 

The GFSI guidelines mention vague things to keep in mind, but are no means an exhaustive or comprehensive tool


Please stop referring to me as Sir/sirs

The Codex has some info, but not sure if anymore helpful than BRC. 

 

I'd stick with designing something which allows a decent flow of Raw materials to finished goods. Think about Pest proofing, water flows - ensure no backflows etc. Also think about any room for future growth etc. Think about allergen management - do you want areas where you can free from etc. 

 

Good Luck!
