ePac Lyon is pleased to announce that its Lyon site has obtained BRC (Global Standard for Packaging Materials) certification. The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes site received an AA rating following an in-depth audit carried out in early January and is now ready to serve customers who require BRC compliance.
“Achieving BRC certification validates the quality of our business, and of course, we are delighted to have passed the inspection and received the full score from the auditors,” says Jonathan Schmitt, Managing Director, and Partner at ePac Lyon. “Since the beginning, we have had a very good quality system. Today, we have official approval to support it,” adds Julie Verney, Quality Manager.
The BRC global standard for packaging materials, designed to protect consumers, covers the manufacture of glass, paper, flexible plastics, and other types of packaging, as well as the associated printing and chemical processes, and is used worldwide by manufacturers producing packaging materials for any product that ends up in the hands of consumers and is a requirement of most major brands in the FMCG industry.
Mickael Reali, Technical Director of ePac Lyon, adds: “It has been an incredible year for ePac Lyon, and BRC certification was the next logical step in our quest to serve customers with high-quality packaging delivered quickly. Not only it will open up a new market share for us, but it will also reduce the audit burden for brand owners and retailers. The list of customers willing to work with us once we have obtained the BRC label is growing rapidly. So I’m very happy to be able to make this announcement and open our doors to them.”
