The AA Team - Silvery Tweed Cereals scores highest possible BRC food safety rating

The AA Team - Silvery Tweed Cereals scores highest possible BRC food safety rating

20 May 2018

Customers of Berwick-based cereal processors Silvery Tweed Cereals can feel secure in the quality, traceability and processing conditions of their supplier’s products, after Silvery Tweed’s certification under the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety was upgraded to an AA rating – the highest score possible.

Silvery Tweed Cereals’ industry-leading food safety rating was awarded following a rigorous external appraisal by food industry certification body SAI Global last month and illustrates the business’s commitment to high quality standards and food manufacture best practice, as well as helping build confidence in the supply chain.

Consumer protection organisation BRC is globally recognised as a leading light in the assessment of food safety standards across the supply chain. Operating the most rigorous third-party certification scheme of its type, its accreditations are recognised as benchmarks for best practice in the food and food ingredient manufacturing, processing and packing industry, helping to provide assurance to customers that food products are safe, legal and of high quality.

Among other criteria, the BRC food safety certification assesses food businesses’ best practice compliance across hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) based food safety; systems of quality management; best practice in the manufacturing process; and demonstration of resilience, transparency and traceability in the supply chain.

More broadly, accreditation under the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety aims to ensure that an ongoing culture of quality, product safety and legality is established and maintained within accredited organisations. Certification under BRC provides an actionable framework for managing product safety, integrity, legality and quality.

Martin Drewery, Technical Manager at Silvery Tweed Cereals, welcomed the business’s upgrade to an AA rating.

“We’re very pleased to be awarded an AA food safety rating by the BRC – it’s a testament to all the hard work that goes on across our sites to deliver product quality, hygiene, and safety. Our work doesn’t stop here, though: we’re still committed to making ongoing improvements in delivering quality and transparency at all stages of the supply and manufacture process.

“With food standards – rightly – becoming ever stricter, businesses want complete confidence in the quality, provenance, and processing methods used for their ingredients. Thanks to our industry-leading BRC certification, we’re proud to be able to offer our customers that assurance.”

Silvery Tweed Cereals is one of the longest-established family businesses in the British food manufacturing industry, with the Gladstone family maintaining their ownership and management consistently throughout its 175 years in business. Today the company processes raw grains at its 90,000 sq ft factory – most of which come from a 40-mile radius in the Scottish Borders – into cereal ingredients, as well as cleaning and blending seeds, for supply into cereal and bakery products.
