Howards Tenens' Andover site has been accredited with a BRC award, an internationally recognised standard. The Standards audit and confirm a business’ adherence against strict quality, safety and operational criteria and ensure that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer.
Ian Wood, General Manager for Howard Tenens Andover, comments:
“I am very proud of this achievement. The accreditation clearly demonstrates the quality of the services we provide and the calibre of our warehouse facilities and staff”.
The British Retail Consortium (BRC) award is an internationally recognised standard that is fast becoming a fundamental requirement for logistics customers. It has become a benchmark for best practices in storage and distribution, guarantying the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria. In order to obtain the award Howard Tenens employees have undergone numerous different training courses above and beyond those the company already offers.
“Having a customer base made up of household names and bluechip businesses meant that a lot of the quality process document was already in place as a prerequisite of working with those type of brands,” states Wood, “but going through the BRC accreditation process helped us further increase our standards and gives our customers a recognised accreditation for their supplier chain which they can then market.”
Helen Barry – Operations Controller at Organix stated:
“As a long-standing supply partner with Howard Tenens, Organix are delighted that Howard Tenens have now secured BRC accreditation. This is a reflection of all the hard work that the team have put in over the last few months and recognises their commitment to quality and food safety.”
