Three Wisconsin Locations Recognized by British Retail Consortium Global Standards

NEENAH, Wis. (June 6, 2013) – Menasha Packaging is proud to announce that three of its Wisconsin facilities have been recognized by British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standards, a leading global safety and quality certification program.

After comprehensive onsite audits, Menasha Packaging plants in Neenah and Hartford, Wisconsin 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 for Storage and Distribution.

“With these certifications, Menasha Packaging has joined an elite group of paper packaging suppliers,” said Paula Malueg, Quality Assurance and Compliance Manager for Menasha Packaging. “Currently, there are only seven other companies in the U.S. that are certified to this standard for paper.”

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.

“Our customers are increasingly looking for packaging partners that are not only committed to quality, but aim higher,” said Mike Waite, President of Menasha Packaging. “The prestige of these certifications proves Menasha’s commitment to continuous improvement in our programs and processes that support safety and quality, giving our customers confidence in our role in their supply chain.”

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