As well as reflecting the standard’s best practise, Oakland’s BRC accreditation demonstrates consistency and care in the supply chain operation which encompasses order picking and packing, a key factor in the firm’s popularity as an Irish supply chain operator of choice.

Oakland’s Quality Assurance Manager, Louise Smith, comments: “We are all delighted particularly as the audit provided us with such positive feedback. Our team’s dedication ensures attention to detail and flexibility of service offer is maintained throughout, delivering positive results time after time.”
