Manufacturing site of the year award – we’ve won!


We’re incredibly proud to announce that our Billington Foodservice team have won the BRC-GS Certified Manufacturing Site of the Year Award!

For those not in the know, BRCGS is a leading brand and consumer protection organisation, used by over 29,000 certificated suppliers in over 130 countries. BRCGS’ Standards guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria and ensure that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer. 

The Foodservice Team took a trip down south for this year’s Food Safety Europe 2020 Conference in London, and brought the award back with them. 

Kevin Tetley, Technical Director at Billington Foodservice said: “We are extremely proud of being shortlisted for this award. It’s fantastic recognition of the continued commitment across our business to driving BRC Global Standards throughout our operation. This means we’re operating to consistently high standards that allow us to continue to grow with customers, ensuring they can be confident with the integrity of the products we manufacture.” 

Gary Blake, CEO of The Billington Group added: “It’s fantastic to see our foodservice get recognised by a world renowned organisation. Our safety standards are of paramount importance to us, and this success is testament to the hard work of our teams across multiple sites. Thank you to BRCGS for the award, we’re proud to be holders of their ‘Food Safety Certificated’ badge.”

A huge well done to everyone involved!
