Organic supplier retains its retail A* rating despite more rigorous assessment regime

Produce World RBO gained top marks from British Retail Consortium (BRC) assessors following an audit at the end of last month.

The specialist organic root vegetable division of Produce World, which is based near Peterborough, was the first site in the fresh produce industry to achieve an A* rating three years ago. This put it among the top one per cent of food businesses using the BRC accreditation system.

This year's audit featured more rigorous specifications, according to Produce World roots technical director Andy Mitchell. "It was a tough two days that has tested the system to the limit. I am proud to say that feedback from the auditor was very positive."

Cert ID Europe certification manager Maria Taylor said the business "demonstrated outstanding standards".
