Redditch's Oakland International has received industry sustainability grade

Redditch Editorial 27th Mar, 2024   0

SUPPLY chain solutions provider for two of its depots following unannounced inspections.

The business is in its sector to achieve BRCGS accreditation, internationally recognised as the ‘global standard’ for storage and distribution.

The standard encompasses all actions undertaken that may affect safety, quality and legality of products handled and stored, with the standard viewed as a cross-function responsibility.

All Oakland International’s depots across the UK and Ireland are BRCGS AA graded and they are also working towards becoming the first business within their sector to achieve net zero.

Oakland International group supply chain certification and compliance manager Louise Smith said: “This is a tremendous result and down to the sheer dedication and hard work of every depot team member who maintain these exacting quality standards, not just when they know an audit is due but as this result clearly demonstrates, year-round.

“Working within the supply chain food safety is of paramount importance, so for us to not only retain but improve on our BRCGS accreditation, this is a recognised industry endorsement for food quality, safety and responsibility.

“Securing BRCGS’s AA+ rating is a clear endorsement for customers and our supply chain partners that they can have absolute faith in every area of Oakland’s operation, from product safety to quality and legality, that they won’t be compromised in any way.”
