We’re celebrating! ACS&T has achieved the highest global standard in safety and quality across all our sites for the fifth year running.

As one of the first temperature controlled logistics companies to gain the BRC Storage & Distribution Standard in 2008, we passed our latest audit with its best results yet.

The BRC Global Standard is universally considered as a benchmark guarantee of quality, safety and operational criteria, and we’ve consistently met stringent standards.

We are the only food logistics business in Europe to be accredited with the BRC (Storage and Distribution) certification across all sites and temperature regimes. 

The audits were carried out by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) and covered all our sites in Grimsby, Wolverhampton, Tewkesbury and Scarborough.

Our compliance manager Tony Chapman was charged with making sure this latest audit ran smoothly.

He said: “We are tremendously proud of our achievement, which means our customers can be 100 per cent confident that their products are handled, stored and delivered a totally safe environment.”

The assessments cover hygiene, food safety, environmental standards, operating systems, traceability, layout, product flow and handling requirements, which provide a benchmark for best practices within storage and distribution.

The Standard includes continuous improvement and we use its requirements as the cornerstone of our processes.  This is how we continuously develop our services.

Managing director Malcolm Johnstone added: “Our policy of continuous improvement drives our organisation forward.  This allows us to make a real and positive impact on our customers’ businesses.”

Quality comes first at ACS&T and this achievement demonstrates our commitment to delivering the best service with robust CSR and environmental policies.  We also hold ISO9001 and ISO14001 certifications.
