BRCGS AA+ Accreditation Awarded to Freemans Event Partners
Freemans Event Partners has been awarded its ninth consecutive accreditation rating from the British Retail Consortium Global Standards, BRCGS.
The Gloucester-based event specialist has been awarded the AA+ grade, in recognition of its impeccable food safety and supply chain standard. An AA+ rating means that Freemans Event Partners was subject to an unannounced audit, for which they received no ‘minors’ or ‘non-conformances’. The BRCGS Global Standard for Storage and Distribution is an industry leading organisation that drives the highest standards in food products safety, storage and distribution. The BRCGS accreditation is an internationally recognised certification and a seal of quality, recognised by retailers, manufacturers, food service organisations and raw materials processors worldwide. As an event catering business, this recognition is of paramount importance to clients and partners alike.
Tim Hobbs, Director of Wholesale & FMCG Retail at Freemans Event Partners, explains: “As a global indicator of quality assurance, the BRCGS is the gold standard, and it doesn’t get better than the AA+ rating.”
Stephen Freeman, Chief Executive Officer at Freemans Event Partners, adds:
“This is a fantastic achievement and one that is testament to the ongoing work and commitment of the entire team within the wholesale and FMCG division. There’s really no better way of proving and showcasing these efforts, than with this accreditation.
“Also, to have received a consistently high grade for nearly a decade is a brilliant achievement in and of itself. It’s this kind of ongoing commitment to quality and standard which we strive to achieve on a day-to-day basis.”
