British Retail Consortium or BRC audit, which confirms quality and safety of processes and products, has granted “Orkla Latvija” biscuit production facility the highest possible rating or (AA) level.

 

“We have begun a new year with a number of good achievements by receiving the highest ratings from one of the strictest global voluntarily applicable standards for food safety and quality – BRC. In the recent years, we have achieved admirable progress both in technical and professional development with a huge amount of work contribution, which has resulted in achieving the highest degree of internationally recognised assessment. I thank our team in the biscuit production facility for the great job they have done,” says Toms Didrihsons, Chairman of the Board of “Orkla Latvija”.

 

The audit took place from 11 to 13 November, and it was conducted by the leading auditor Juris Mauriņš representing “Bureau Veritas”, who especially praised the competent and professional team.
