LGS Specialty Sales Ltd. (LGS), an importer and distributor of citrus, grapes, and avocados, is thrilled to announce that they are BRC certified. The company said they are one of the first in its category to earn this certification.
LGS said it sought the BRC certification due to its set of standards that are tailored to the company’s role within the supply chain. BRC certification is a more rigorous standard within the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), with LGS citing it is a good fit for their business model as an importer. As a certified company, BRC not only monitors LGS for compliance, but also verifies all of its suppliers for implementation of food safety and quality protocol.
"This investment was a valuable choice for our team knowing that it would enhance our brand quality,” said Kristina Kovac, Food Safety director at LGS. “It is part of our company’s model to always be forward-thinking and a step ahead.”
“From the very beginning, we have cared deeply about food safety, not just to protect our customers - which is of utmost important to us - but to also enhance our credibility and relationships with retail partners,” said Luke Sears, President and founder of LGS. “We want them to be assured that the products we provide are the best available from around the world and protected with the highest standards from our growers to their produce bins.”
