Leading thermoforming business, Somerset-based Kingsmoor Packaging, has maintained its AA grade BRC certification for a consecutive year. Under the revised issue 5 of the BRC Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials, a AA grade is one of the highest awards that a business can achieve within the certification scheme.
The BRC certificate streamlines the supplier approval process and makes it easier for food companies to meet the requirements of the BRC Food Standard, while also helping retailers and food manufacturers to adhere to their legal obligations.
The standard specifies HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point), good manufacturing practices, plus the hygiene, safety and quality requirements for packaging manufacturers who supply the food and consumer products industries. Kingsmoor Packaging’s managing director, James Hill, said: “A consecutive AA grade shows our commitment to operating at the highest possible standards in producing quality thermoformed packaging products. The achievement is credit to the hard work and resolve of the team here at KPL.”
Kingsmoor Packaging manufacture food grade packaging solutions in APET, PP and HIPS - as well as RPET, which contains at least 50% post-consumer recycled waste and at least 30% industry recycled waste. With in-house tooling and design, operating in tandem with their state of the art modern production facilities, Kingsmoor Packaging is able to provide customers with a nimble, flexible and cost effective single source service.
