When Sutter Foods wanted to proceed with BRC certification, we choose Safe Food Certifications due to their stellar reputation and a 5 start BRCGS KPI rating. After going through 3 BRCGS audits in one year, we can attest to the professionalism and technical excellence of Safe Food Certification auditors. The audits helped us improve our program and achieve a “AA” BRCGS audit grade.
