A panel of four leading professionals are coming to Lancashire to support the growing food manufacturing sector and those business owners operating in this field.In a bid to de-mystify the complicated rulings set by the British Retail Consortium (BRC), the event will offer advice and tips on ensuring your processes make you BRC compliant.
The event is free for food manufacturers and is being hosted by leading IT experts, Progrex on Tuesday, 25th June at Birchall Food Services from 8am – 10.30am.
Sharon Xuereb, Business Development Manager from Progrex said: “The audit process and being BRC compliant can be a daunting process but with the right procedures in place can become less of a headache.It’s knowing and understanding the issues and audit criteria to get you one step ahead in your procedures that’s the key.
“We know that sadly this is an area that businesses often fail on.It's a big commitment and resource requirement for food manufacturers, particularly smaller businesses and the stringent standards change regularly. By attending this event, we hope we can provide the right ammunition for business owners to implement to ensure continued success of the sector and a thriving Lancashire economy.”
The event will have presentations by Barbara Bray from Alo Solutions on demonstrating BRC compliance, Robin Hills from Ei4Change discussing how to communicate senior management commitment to the workforce; Adeyemi Shodipo from Charis Management Systems discussing HACCP and food safety culture as well as Sharon Xuereb who will be demonstrating BRC gap analysis solutions.
Sharon added: “We feel we have brought the right team of experts together to the event who can allay any concerns business owners may have; or to answer any questions that will help Lancashire food manufacturing businesses put the right plans in place to help them grow and prosper.
“By tweaking and adapting the operations process and having the right culture in place, businesses can concentrate on growing from the ground up, safe in the knowledge that they are adhering to all criteria and that when the all-important audit is done, your business is BRC compliant.”
