Indian sesame seed exporter HL Agro BRC certified

HL Agro Products has received food safety certification through the British Retail Consortium Global Standards (BRCGS) for its fully automated sesame processing facility based in Kanpur, India.

The facility was given an A-Grade following an in-depth audit carried out at the end of September and is now ready to serve customers that require BRC compliance.

BRC is a certification program recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) in more than 100 countries worldwide. It contains requirements for food processors to follow to build an effective food safety management system.

The standard aims to harmonise international food safety standards and promotes consistency across the supply chain for food and ingredient manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors.

To attain certification, the sesame facility operated by HL Agro underwent a third-party audit of everything from quality management and risk analysis to building standards for food safety, operations, product and process control, and personnel.

The accreditation will allow HL Agro to enter sectors of the market only accessible to certified producers.
