We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we have been awarded the highest possible accreditation, a Double AA, in the exceptionally stringent British Retail Consortium annual audit. This marks our 10th consecutive A Grade with the BRC. The audit, which looks at all aspects of the company’s food safety and working practices, is notoriously challenging. However due to our continued commitment to food safety and the exceptionally hard work of our team we came out of the day-long audit with the highest praise.
In recent years we have expanded, adding new buildings and storage space to our existing operation which is based on the family farm. This included our yogurt room, opened last year, from which we make Yorlife, our award-winning line of kefir drinks as well as manufacturing yogurt for other national brands. This expansion and the fact that the BRC have recently released a new set of guidelines meant the pressure to succeed at the audit was greater than ever.
We would like to say a huge thank you to each and everyone of our staff members who worked so hard to make sure everything was perfect and who continuously strive to ensure that the standards at our facility are maintained.
