The BRCGS START! Programme has been designed for small sites where the full requirements of the Standard may not always be practical or add value and in sites that are still developing food safety management systems. The BRCGS START! Programme is aligned with the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Global Markets Programme.
The BRCGS START! Programme sets out the requirements for the manufacture of processed foods and the preparation of primary products supplied as retailer-branded products, branded food products, and food or ingredients. The audit and certification will apply only to products that have been manufactured or prepared at the site where the audit has taken place and will include storage facilities that are under the direct control of the production site management.
The nice kind people at Food Information Solutions have put together this package of documents all based around the START! Programme Basic requirements.
We’ve put together quite a few documents (over 100 to be more accurate), that will help you meet and, in many ways, exceed the requirements of the START! Programme Basic standard. The forms are supplied in Microsoft Word and Excel formats that can be customised with your own logo and information specific to your site.
The cost for the START! Programme Basic standalone document package is £500 plus VAT.
