Quality & Certifications
As a part of our commitment to quality, reliability and traceability, The Orchard Organisation has been certified by the BRC for a number of years, achieving the highest grade possible on each occasion; most recently gaining “AA” grade. We have worked hard since the company’s inception to support and improve our supply base and 99% of our suppliers now have a GFSI Certification.
We are Sedex members and hold Organic Certification from The Soil Association. We are also members of the British Fruit Juice Association and AIJN to help us ensure that we remain always fully informed of current legislation and legal requirements within the Food Industry.
The Orchard Organisation also utilises such facilities as FSA and RASFF to keep up to date with any live issues affecting food manufacturing.
