The Fruitery Achieves AA* Certification

In less than a year since its official initial BRC certification, The Fruitery – Chambers’ prepared, ready-to-eat fruit division – has been awarded an AA* (the highest achievable) grade, following an unannounced audit in February.

The BRC two-day audit, was based on analysis of the paperwork trail for all fruit that is processed via The Fruitery’s high care facility as well as face-to-face meetings with key production staff. Auditors spent time with members of The Fruitery team to assess their levels of awareness of the recommended processes to ensure compliance with the global food safety initiative – and of course to determine whether they understood and fully implemented the required protocols in line with industry best practice, to deliver a quality, safe product.

Kate Boxall, Compliance and Health & Safety Manager for The Fruitery commented, “100% traceability, an unmatched time scale from harvest to preparation and a hefty investment in state-of-the-art technology to ensure that we comply with the most stringent food hygiene protocols, these have always been the cornerstone of The Fruitery proposition. These factors are key in providing reassurance to our customers that The Fruitery represents the freshest, direct from the farm, high-quality ready-to-eat prepared fruit pots. However, the BRC AA* certification in such a short space of time since The Fruitery’s launch in 2019 is further proof of the business’ ongoing commitment to delivering a superior product that boasts the top level of global food compliance.
