Menasha Packaging's Wisconsin plants in Neenah and Hartford, Midwest Fulfillment Center, also in Neenah, recognized by British Retail Consortium Global Standards for second consecutive year

NEENAH, Wisconsin , July 8, 2014 (press release) – Hartford and Two Neenah Locations Receive Prestigious Safety, Quality Certification

For the second consecutive year, three Wisconsin-based Menasha Packaging facilities have been recognized by British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standards, a leading global safety and quality certification program.

Menasha Packaging plants in Neenah and Hartford, Wisconsin once again achieved “A” grade certifications for the BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials. The company’s Midwest Fulfillment Center, also located in Neenah, was awarded a BRC Global Standard Certificate for Storage and Distribution.

“The BRC Global Standards are deeply comprehensive and very few U.S. paper packaging suppliers are certified to this standard,” said Ernest Gramer, Midwest Region Quality Manager at Menasha Packaging. “Having our facilities complete the BRC certification process gives our customers confidence in our systems and confirms our commitment to safety, legality and quality.”

The BRC Global Standards are highly regarded and widely used by suppliers and retailers worldwide since they aid in standardizing quality, safety, operational criteria and manufacturers’ fulfillment of legal obligations. Its Packaging and Packaging Materials standard is also a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) recognized scheme.

BRC Global Standard audits are currently underway or in the works at additional Menasha Packaging facilities around the country.
