Lancashire supplier Huntapac Produce last week held a ‘Blue Friday’ to thank staff and celebrate being presented with Tesco’s Blue rating for its Produce Packing Standard.
The news comes in a week of success in industry accreditations for Huntapac, as the company also secured A+ in the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standards for its food safety Issue 7, and Gold in Tesco’s Nurture Certification.
Both the BRC standard and Tesco’s Produce Packing Standard were presented following a series of unannounced audits.
“Receiving these fantastic accreditations provides not only confidence to our customers but also to consumers,” said technical director, Stephen Shields.
“They are testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire team here at Huntapac and really shows the level of investment we have made to drive standards forward.”
