Double A gains another A
Double A Kebab continues to be at the forefront in the kebab industry
by gaining a BRC “A” Grade Accreditation.
BRC accreditation is a global standard for food manufacture where manufacturing practices, traceability and hygiene are constantly monitored at the highest level. Double A achieved their accreditation at the first attempt with the help of Ian Trevor at the BRC Consultancy firm Foodfix Ltd.
Martyn Hayward, Operations Manager, said “It’s good to have a team wanting to work to the highest standards. Knowing that we are manufacturing to the hygiene and labelling levels required for selling to supermarkets really does add a large element of trust to the Double A brand. Gaining external accreditation was hard work but confirms everything we do to our customers which is fantastic.”
With the new FSA food labelling laws and todays focus on food authenticity, the BRC listing gives the Double A customer trust and safety in the Double A brand. 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 both the kebab market and others that we manufacture products for.”
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 needed to find new customers and markets 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 manufature products 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 and in new sectors.
