GFSI Certified

Watson Inc. is BRC certified and earned an “A” rating.

BRC is a GFSI certification standard. BRC certification is central to Watson’s quality incentives and customer focus programs.

The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) is a project led by the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) to harmonize international food safety standards and reduce the need for multiple supplier audits. CGF members include leading retailer organizations and food manufacturers.

The BRC was the first standard to be recognized as meeting the GFSI benchmark. Benchmarking to GFSI ensures that the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety is accepted by many of the world’s largest retail interests. The BRC’s ability to react to changing food safety concerns and meet customer requirements has resulted in the BRC Standard becoming one of the most popular GFSI standards.

Watson is very proud of all their employees and their commitment to quality and their customers. Employee commitment to their quality systems made this achievement possible. Quality is truly central to Watson’s operations and is a critical part of every employee’s role at Watson.
