BAYTOWN, Texas, April 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Honey Holding I, Ltd (dba Honey Solutions), an industrial honey producer, has passed its 2017-2018 British Retail Consortium (BRC) Version 7 certification earning the "AA" rating. This is the fourth year that the BRC has awarded Honey Holding its highest rating. The Global Standard for Food Safety as published by the BRC, now in its 7th issue, provides an internationally ratified framework to manage product safety, integrity, legality, quality and operational controls in the food and food ingredient industry.

The BRC Issue 7 requires effective traceability system and traceability verification throughout the supply chain to the last packer or grower where ingredients were purchased. Specific to Honey Holding, the BRC characterized its proprietary traceability system as "very advanced" providing "full recall of all required documents, specifications, and analytical results for any combination of raw honey, finished honey and packaging materials within a few minutes." Gerry Murphy, SVP of Procurement, noted, "The BRC's rating of AA reflects our team's ongoing commitment to provide our customers a stringent, verifiable approach to food safety and supply chain security from farm to table."
The BRC was the first standard in the world approved by the Global Food Safety Initiative benchmark committee. Today, the BRC is the leading safety and quality certification program used by over 22,000 certified suppliers in 123 countries. BRC Global Standards are commonly considered a fundamental requirement by leading retailers, bakers and food processors in Europe and North America.
