(St. Louis, MO) July 11, 2016. Anchor Packaging, Inc., one of North America’s largest manufacturers of specialty food packaging, used by restaurants and supermarkets for take-out meals, earned the “High Hygiene” certification from NSF International for the BRC Global Standard for Packaging. The British Retail Consortium (BRC) is the leading safety and quality certification program to ensure that manufacturers fulfill their legal obligations and provide protection for the end user.
“BRC is the preeminent food safety standard created to promote consistency across the supply chain, by ensuring delivery of safe food to consumers.” said Jeffrey Wolff, President of Anchor Packaging. “The complexities of today’s food supply chain mandate that the most stringent food safety protocols be implemented at every point of supply. We have achieved a major milestone by raising our manufacturing standards to comply with the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmark. Our customers now have the assurance that Anchor Packaging operates to the highest quality standards, while we continually strive to maintain and improve these standards that set us apart” added Mr. Wolff.
The NSF Certificate of Conformity for BRC Packaging-High Hygiene (for food contact) was awarded, following extensive audits of Anchor Packaging rigid container facilities in Paragould and Jonesboro, Arkansas.
Anchor Packaging’s products include affordable, upscale, to-go packaging to merchandise prepared ready-to-heat meals in supermarkets, and takeout meals offered by restaurants and other foodservice operations. Anchor’s unique product line includes stock and custom rigid packaging, as well as a broad line of cling film wraps.
