Calico Food Ingredients Ltd. achieved "AA" level BRC certification:

At Calico Food Ingredients we are committed to food safety, providing you with the highest quality products and best-in-class customer service.  A key part of this commitment is our dedication to food safety and, specifically, the principles set forth by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) system and the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) approach.  

To this end, Calico has implemented the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard for Food Safety and we are delighted to announce that we achieved an “AA” grade on our BRC re-certification audit completed June 2018.  This tremendous accomplishment is a direct result of the hard work and dedication of the whole Calico team and a testament to our focus on continuous improvement. 

We appreciate the trust and confidence that customers place in us as a supply partner and hope our BRC audit grade is evidence of our commitment to continually earning that trust.  We truly value your business and look forward to continued success together!
