Anchor thermoforming plants receive hygiene certification

July 26, 2017

Anchor Packaging, a manufacturer of specialty food packaging used by restaurants and supermarkets for take-out meals, has again earned “High Hygiene” certification from NSF International for the BRC Global Standard for Packaging.  The British Retail Consortium (BRC) is a safety and quality certification program that ensures manufacturers fulfill their legal obligations and protect the end user.

BRC was created to promote consistency across the supply chain, by ensuring delivery of safe food to consumers. Manufacturing standards must also comply with the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmark. The certification means Anchor Packaging facilities are operating to the highest quality standards, while continually striving to maintain and improve the standards that set them apart, according to an Anchor press release.

The NSF Certificate of Conformity for BRC Packaging-High Hygiene (for food contact) is awarded following extensive annual audits of Anchor Packaging rigid container manufacturing facilities in Paragould and Jonesboro, Arkansas.

Anchor Packaging’s products include tamper-evident containers, upscale to-go packaging to merchandise prepared ready-to-heat meals, stock and custom rigid packaging, as well as a broad line of cling film wraps.
