Direct Food Ingredients Directors left-Right,  Brigg Simpson, Steve Loake (MD), Cath HoughInternational supplier and distributor of functional foods and ingredients, Direct Food Ingredients has been awarded the ‘BRC Agents and Brokers’ accreditation.

The independently owned business, based in Macclesfield, Cheshire, has been accredited by the British Retail Consortium (BRC) for best practice on product safety, quality and the operational criteria required to fulfill obligations with regard to legal compliance and consumer protection.

The new certification follows hot on the heels of the last six years of continued BRC Storage and Distribution accreditation for Direct Food Ingredients, and this latest certification establishes a firm mark of approval on the business’s effective chain of traceability.

Receiving this award will considerably consolidate the business’s market position, differentiating them from their competitors on the basis that European food manufacturers can save considerable time and funds that they would otherwise need to invest in auditing a distributor’s supply chain.

MD Steve Loake explains: “This is a huge success for us at Direct Food Ingredients. To be accredited by the BRC on this latest standard is a result of our hard work and commitment to our infallible QA processes, and it illustrates our dedication to continued growth as a leader in this industry.

“The manufacturers that we supply highly value this award, and by securing this extremely prestigious standard, we will greatly strengthen our position in securing approved supplier status from brands on a global scale. This adds to our continued expansion over recent years”.

Direct Food Ingredients’ head office is located on Waters Green in the centre of Macclesfield (Cheshire, England). The business is an established leader in the importation, storage and distribution of functional foods, nutritional and sports ingredients as well as vitamin and mineral premixes.
