    BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials

    Packaging is a fundamental part of any brand. It defines product integrity and security, and drives innovation. Consumers are attracted to strong and recognisable products that need to be consistent in size, colour and shape. Packaging is therefore an integral part of the manufacturing process. The BRC Packaging Standard can be used by any manufacturer producing packaging materials for all types of products (from food to consumer products) and at all levels: primary, secondary and tertiary.
