Looking for a second opinions on the below.
I work for a relatively big, global company with different sites across the globe. The business unit I am in is not GFSI certified and we are preparing to launch new products onto UK markets with retailer brands in near future. The plan is to:
- use our raw materials from plant A - BRC certified
- process RM on plant B - BRC certified
- pack for customers at co-packers- outsourcing - GFSI cert
So the role of the business is development, QA, sale etc. We would be the direct supplier to customer, although not really physically handling the product.
What would you suggest, is the appropriate BRC standard in this scenario.
Also what is your experience dealing with retailers, my understanding is their preference will be to deal with certified business, even in this case
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
