Tri-Star’s Toni Guarnieri and Matthew Slade-Pedrick

Tri-Star Packaging has received coveted BRC certification status and has been therefore recognised for its position at the cutting edge of the food and beverage packaging industry.

Impressed auditors certified the company to the BRC Storage & Distribution Standard, which ensures that businesses operating in the food and drink supply chain are meeting the highest standards.Tri-Star met a range of demanding requirements to qualify for the certification, demonstrating to the BRC-accredited inspectors that all of its systems offered the highest possible levels of packaging safety and quality control to its customers.

The inspection process evaluated Tri-Star’s systems from beginning to end, covering a comprehensive range of procedures, including storage, transportation, staff training and chemical handling. Tri-Star also had to demonstrate that its own suppliers were safe and provide full traceability for every type of packaging it supplies.

Kevin Curran, managing director of Tri-Star, said: “We believe we are one of the only, if not the only, packaging distributor in our sector in the UK to offer its customers the reassurance of BRC certification.

“In an era when food safety is at the top of the news agenda we felt it was important to be able to offer this valuable level of quality and safety assurance to our customers.

“Our fantastic achievement in becoming BRC certified would not have been possible without the hard work of Tri-Star’s commercial manager, Toni Guarnieri. She led our efforts to gain certification, working tirelessly and with great skill to ensure we met the many stringent requirements demnded by the BRC inspectors.

Kevin added: “ This means the food and beverage companies, who use our packaging will be able to demonstrate to their own customers that their chosen downstream packaging supplier is taking product integrity seriously, a factor which can offer a real point of difference.”
