Double A Grade BRC for Hinckley

In gaining BRC accreditation at its Hinckley site, Frip Finishing becomes one of the first decorative print finishers in the UK to achieve this highly regarded food industry standard. Gaining BRC accreditation is one of the key elements of Frip’s business growth strategy for its hot foil stamping and specialist lamination services. FRIP is aiming to achieve BRC accreditation across each of its five sites by Q1/2018 with both Redditch and Glasgow accredited by the end of 2017.

Leslie Gibson, Group Managing Director, says, “We set out in February to achieve BRC accreditation at Hinckley and we chose to aim for the higher AA grade and we are delighted to have achieved this within just five months. FRIP is one of the largest trade suppliers of hot foil stamping and sheet fed lamination to the packaging industry. As we have grown within this market we increasingly recognised the need of our customers for assurance in food hygiene and safety within the packaging supply chain.”

Malc Griffin, Group Systems Manager, who is leading this project adds, “This project involves a total investment of in excess of £200,000 and we are already seeing internal benefits of BRC compliance; it has given the Group a focus which has lead to a tightening of housekeeping standards, improvements to staff facilities and better internal communications. This has resulted in a positive approach by staff to change and engagement within the business. I am also grateful to our customers and suppliers who have supported us in our understanding of both their requirements and that of BRC.”
