(St. Louis, MO) July 24, 2017. Anchor Packaging, Inc., one of North America’s largest manufacturers of specialty food packaging, used by restaurants and supermarkets for take-out meals, has once again earned “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 protect 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. The complexities of today’s food supply chain mandate that the most stringent food safety protocols be in place at every point of supply. Manufacturing standards must comply with the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmark and Anchor Packaging customers have the assurance that the facilities are operating to the highest quality standards, while continually striving to maintain and improve the standards that set them apart.
The NSF Certificate of Conformity for BRC Packaging-High Hygiene (for food contact) is awarded following extensive annual audits of Anchor Packaging rigid container manufacturing facilities in Paragould and Jonesboro, Arkansas.
Anchor Packaging’s products include Tamper-Evident containers preferred by consumers 2-1, as well as 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.
