When it comes to talk of BRC and IFS, it is with reference to two fundamental standard, at international level, for quality certifications in the production chain of the products supply in the Large Organized Distribution.

In the first case, the acronym BRC indicates British Retail Consortium, which means the Consortium of British GDO. The technical standard that takes this name is the one requested to suppliers who want to enter the British GDO market.

The BRC is based on quality standard that affect HACCP, work environment and product and process inspections.

On the other hand, IFS standard is an international standard adopted in the production chain of German and French agro-industrial GDO. With this, it is requested to the production chain suppliers to respect some sanitary standards and good process procedure, valid to guarantee a good safety and quality level.

Even in this case, the producer and distributor that guarantee IFS standard, declare to look after a management that is based on HACCP principles, on the respect of the food legislation, staff management and tests on the processes and product quality.

Whether in case of institution of BRC or IFS standard, the goal has been to comply with the project framework stated by GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative).
