Caravan Ingredients' Facilities Meet Superior Standards for Globally Recognized Food Safety Programs

January 06, 2012

Caravan Ingredients receives seven superior food safety ratings and two facilities receive BRC certification.

Caravan Ingredients, Inc. scored seven Superior ratings from AIB (American Institute of Baking) International, while two facilities also obtained British Retail Consortium (BRC) certification; both entities are globally recognized for their food safety and quality certification programs.

During seven GMP audits recently conducted at manufacturing and distribution facilities located in Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and New Jersey, Caravan Ingredients received a Recognition of High Achievement - Superior. Only the top 25% of all scores are awarded this title and it is the highest that can be attained. The comprehensive, globally recognized GMP Inspection evaluates within five inspection categories. According to AIB International, scoring high on this audit shows that a supplier complies with food safety regulations and is committed to providing safe, high quality food products to consumers.

Additionally, Caravan Ingredients has committed to obtaining British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard certification as part of the companies Quality initiative. The BRC Global Standard for food safety was the first standard to be recognized as meeting the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmark and focuses on standardization of quality, safety and operational criteria. This year, two locations in New Jersey obtained BRC certification. Three sites are scheduled to complete BRC certification in early 2012.

"The results demonstrate Caravan Ingredients' effort to embed a quality culture throughout the organization. Participation and leadership in this journey is evident at every level," said Jeff Ottarson, Director of Quality at Caravan Ingredients. "Complementary programs will be launched in 2012 to further drive excellence in all we do and to ensure that our customers understand our commitment to implementing the highest industry quality standards."
