Introduced in 2016, the BRC Global Standard for Retail provides essential certification for organizations that retail food products, as well as hard lines. The BRC Global Standard covers the activity of retailing, as well as commissary, sourcing, and in store production

Retailers are the last step in the food supply chain prior to the consumer, and play a critical role in managing the supply chain, as well as the delivery of goods and services to the consumer

This BRC Global Standard is, therefore, designed to promote best practice on product safety, quality and the operational criteria required to fulfil obligations with regard to legal compliance and consumer protection
