BRC Storage and Distribution certification

NewCold’s facility in Corby, UK, now proudly holds BRC Storage and Distribution certification. This achievement is made even more special in that it comes mere months after the cold storage warehouse’s opening at the end of 2022.

This globally recognized standard reflects NewCold’s commitment to best practices in food safety management. The certification is an important part of our risk management programs and is a critical pillar of our promise to meet customer requirements.

“This highlights our relentless focus on best practices and continuous vigilance in food safety. Our product safety management systems ensure we meet the highest standards,” said Graham Harvey, VP of Global Quality, Safety and Sustainability.

The certification is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Corby team and NewCold’s expertise in cold chain logistics. All NewCold sites globally are pursuing certification of a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standard such as BRC Storage and Distribution, says Harvey.

NewCold works to reduce risks to food safety by:

  • minimizing human intervention
  • ensuring temperature integrity
  • keeping the highest hygiene standards

In this way, we proactively eliminate potential risks in our operations.

NewCold’s Corby facility is a fully automated 41-meter-high (134 ft) cold storage with 75,600 pallet positions and nine automated stacker cranes. It now joins its sister UK site, Wakefield, in achieving BRC Storage and Distribution certification.

A leader in advanced food logistics, NewCold has 15 automated warehouses on three continents supported by a team of 2,000 people.
