Essentia Protein Solutions marks 25th BRCGS success

Tipton (West Midlands) based ingredients specialist Essentia Protein Solutions has been awarded the highest global standard in food safety for the 25th year running.

Essentia has achieved the highest AA grade by the BRC (British Retail Consortium) Global Standard for Food Safety at its Ramsay Road manufacturing site.

And for the 13th year running, Essentia has successfully renewed its BQAP (British Quality Assured Pork) accreditation for its natural Drinde™ range of functional proteins.

The BRC Global Standard for Food Safety is universally considered a benchmark of excellence in food manufacturing and operations.

Essentia has consistently met stringent standards in the dried foods and ingredients, and raw prepared products (meat and vegetarian) product categories. 

Tom Cooke, Essentia’s Sales Director UK & Ireland, said: “We are tremendously proud of our achievement. It means our customers can be 100 per cent confident that our products are sourced and manufactured to the highest standards in a totally safe factory environment. And we are particularly proud of our team which has continued to work diligently and safely under Government guidelines throughout the Coronavirus pandemic.”

BQAP accreditation is awarded by the British Meat Processors Association and allows processors to conform with the Red Tractor Farm Assured criteria for manufacturers looking to offer ‘Quality British Food’. 

With over 40 years’ experience, Essentia Protein Solutions is the UK leader in the production of animal proteins for the food industry.

Essentia’s market leading product brands include Drinde™, ScanPro™, APro™, Omnibroth™ and ProBase™ which encompasses stocks, broths and premium fats.

They have been developed to use in combination with or as an alternative to other ingredients and raw materials in a wide range of meat and savoury applications.
