Volk Enterprises Inc. is pleased to announce that the company has recently become certified by the British Retail Consortium (BRC) for the Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials at its Turlock, California, manufacturing facility.

The BRC certification program is a leading quality and safety certification program and is one of the most rigorous standards recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative.

To achieve this certification, Volk Enterprises has been strictly audited by a third party and found to be well within the parameters of the BRC's guidelines to ensure that manufacturing processes promote both a high level of quality and safety. This achievement was made possible through the continuing cooperation of departments throughout the organization and the company's commitment to improving safety and quality practices.

Participating in this program is an ever evolving process, and Volk Enterprises will remain focused on safety and ongoing quality in order to continue to meet the requirements of this program. Obtaining this certification has also allowed the company to meet customer needs, as many customers require a certified manufacturer to obtain similar certifications. Volk has been providing consumers, retailers and processors tools that have aided in food safety for 50 years, and this certification is an example of the many steps Volk takes to deliver products of the highest quality.
