Manufacturing Site of the Year

We are incredibly proud to announce that we have won the BRC-GS Certified Manufacturing Site of the Year Award. We won this award back in February, many of you may well have heard the news and seen the award, but due to Covid – 19 the amazing accolade didn’t receive the celebration it deserves.  We wanted to change that and celebrate the hard work that goes into being recognised as the Manufacturing Site of the Year. We caught up with, Technical Director, Kevin Tetley, Kitchen Technical Manager, Paula Mullen and Bakery Technical Manager, Tomasz Saternus to find out what BRC-GS Certified Manufacturing Site of the Year means to them.

“Having been shortlisted, the winning business was announced and presented at Food Safety Europe Conference back in February. Sabina, Paula and Tomasz were in attendance to accept the award on behalf of the company.

The award goes a long way towards recognising and celebrating all the hard work that goes on across our Bakery and Kitchen sites on a daily basis to drive high standards and develop innovative continuous improvement solutions.

BRC-GS is at the heart of our culture and supports our reputation in the industry for excellent product integrity.  It was such a proud moment to hear the news of our success.”  – Kevin Tetley, Technical Director
