PACKAGING: Nampak Flexible Delivers World-Class Quality
Recent Western Cape Business News
Recently, Nampak Flexible’s plant in Ndabeni, Cape Town, underwent a stringent audit to receive the BRC (British Retail Consortium) Global Standard certification. Essentially, what this means is that food packaging and other packaging materials produced by Nampak Flexible Ndabeni are of the highest worldwide standards.
The BRC Global Standards are a leading global product safety and quality certification program used by certificated suppliers in over 100 countries. The BRC certification is regarded as the benchmark for best practice in the food industry, and has evolved into a global standard used not only to assess retailer suppliers, but as a framework upon which many companies have based their supplier assessment programmes. This plays a particularly important role in the export markets where, according to Robin Moore, Nampak Flexible Managing Director, the accreditation is vital for potential and existing customers who export to the United Kingdom and Europe where BRC accreditation is the entry ticket to supplying all the major supermarket chains.
“Obtaining BRC accreditation at our Cape Town Ndabeni site is another significant step forward in turning Nampak Flexible into a world class business. Following our Kwazulu-Natal plant’s certification in April last year, Nampak Flexible is the only flexible packaging company to achieve BRC accreditation at all its operations and one of very few if any packaging companies in South Africa to do so.” – say’s Moore.
Moore adds that through standards such as BRC, along with the ISO (International Standards Organization) and AIB (The American Institute Of Baking) certifications already held by Nampak Flexible, the company aims to consistently meet and exceed the exacting quality standards and expectations of its customers.
