Amazing audit!

Our breweries are committed to achieving and maintaining the highest standards and now they’ve received top grades from the British Retail Consortium (BRC).

Marston’s Brewery achieved the highest accolade – an AA grade – in the BRC Global Standards Food Safety annual audit. Beating last year’s grade and securing top marks in each section of the audit, this amazing achievement shows our commitment to delivering high quality products. It highlights the strong business ethics at the heart of production and delivery and reinforces our excellent industry-wide reputation.

Banks’s Brewery secured an A grade and, with only six minors, was one away from achieving the top grading. Eagle Brewery was awarded the same grade back in October. This is a really great achievement for both breweries and demonstrates that we have the right systems in place to produce and deliver products that are safe for our consumers. We’re working hard to climb back up to an AA grade next year.

Each site was graded on over 260 clauses – from food safety policies to site security, equipment maintenance, training, building standards and waste management – securing top marks in each category.

This highly regarded standard was developed by industry experts to ensure the attainment and maintenance of high standards for product safety and quality in the food manufacturing, processing and packing industry. It enables customers to evaluate us against a highly sought after and globally recognised standard.

And if that wasn’t enough, we also had a Feed Materials Assurance Scheme audit (covering the spent grain intended for animals); a Soil Association Organic audit; and a Gluten Free audit (allowing us to develop and produce gluten free drinks), at the same time!

A HUGE well done to all the teams involved – keep up the great work!
