Double A Kebab are pleased to announce that they are now an A-Grade BRC accredited manufacturer.
BRC accreditation is a global standard for food manufacture where manufacturing practices, traceability and hygiene are constantly monitored at the highest level.
Martyn Hayward, Operations Manager, has spearheaded the project and says “It’s been a shift in working practices but the staff at Double A have really responded well to the additional workload required in their day to day duties. It’s good to have a team wanting to work to the highest standards”
Double A enlisted the services of Food Fix Ltd to guide them through the accreditation process. Ian Trevor was the lead consultant on the project and, along with Food Safety Consultant David Koenig-Green, has achieved the target of gaining the A-grade at first attempt. Ian comments “It’s been a great journey taking the company through the accreditation process. What inspired me to take the consultancy position in the first place was the drive and clarity of vison within the Double A team. I can’t wait to be part of the next exciting stage of the expansion plans.”
Double A have also invested in the factory and warehousing. Martyn continues, “Those who have previously visited our premises will know that they weren’t too shabby to start with. Now, with over £100k investment in the building alone, we are set for the future growth of Double A”
In the last few years, alongside the strong performance of the core kebab product, Double A have seen growth in the manufacturing of products for other big brands in food retail and food service. BRC accreditation will see this diversification continue. “Our Kebab product will always be at the heart of the company.” Martyn explains, “It’s what made us. However, for the company to grow we need to find new customers and markets and to serve. We certainly won’t be neglecting the kebab but, now we have the BRC accreditation, we are able to serve the customers who have been knocking on our door wanting us to produce on their behalf.”
The future of the Double A Kebab is secure, that side of the business will not change except for manufacturing under BRC conditions. The company growth will continue as it evolves into a food processing company in new sectors.
