WATERLOO, ON, Jan. 11, 2012 /CNW/ - Brick Brewing Company (TSX: BRB) was
today officially certified under British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global
Standards for Food Safety, one of the highest and most internationally
recognized standards for safe food production. "This recognition is the
culmination of an ongoing focus to provide the highest quality products
we can to our hardworking customers." said Russell Tabata, Chief
Technical Officer, Brick Brewing Company. "For us, quality starts with
ensuring our products meet, or exceed, the highest standards for food
safety. Achieving an A-rating, the highest certification score
possible, is a clear testament to Brick's ongoing commitment to
achieving this standard."
Brick Brewing Company has been a craft brewing industry leader since it
established the category in 1984. "We are the only craft brewer in
Canada to be certified under the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety."
offered George Croft, President and CEO, Brick Brewing Company. "I am
incredibly proud of the team here at Brick Brewing for their
unwillingness to accept good enough. Our customers deserve the highest quality beer we can possibly make
and the global food safety certification is proof of that commitment."
The BRC Global Standard for Food Safety was established in 1996 to
create a single, internationally recognized standard for food safety.
"There is no higher standard for food safety than this global food
safety certification. For the most part, large global companies
participate in this program, but we wanted to be certified because
nothing matters more to our team than the quality of our products. We
wanted to prove that we're world-class." said Bill Henry, Director of
Brewing, Quality and Logistics, Brick Brewing Company.
Over the past three years Brick Brewing Company's focus on quality has
produced numerous Ontario, Canadian and Global Brewing awards and this
certification is further evidence of that track record.
