Audit successes for International Paper Foodservice Europe
International Paper Foodservice Europe is celebrating top results in two recent, influential business audits. The company has been awarded a BRC AA grade pass for its manufacturing facility in Winsford, Cheshire and has achieved a Gold rating in the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) audit conducted by EcoVadis.
BRC Global Standards is an internationally recognised third party certification programme designed to guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria across both food and non-food categories. The standards are often a fundamental requirement of leading retailers, and are used by over 25,000 certificated suppliers in over 130 countries.
International Paper Foodservice Europe’s AA grade pass relates to its core activity – the manufacture of plain and flexographic printed single wall paper based food and hot drinks containers.
EcoVadis is a market-leading audit business used by many of the world’s largest companies and brands to audit the CSR performance of their suppliers. International Paper Foodservice Europe recently participated in an evaluation programme and its Gold rating ranks it in the top 5% of companies.
Commenting on these successes, Managing Director, Mike Turner, says: “Achieving the BRC AA grade is a team effort and recognises the hard work and commitment to quality standards of all production, engineering and warehouse staff at Winsford. I am equally delighted with the Gold level EcoVadis award; it is a great achievement.”
