A Yorkshire bird food company was granted the top ‘A grade’ rating from the British Retail Consortium for the third year in a row.
The production facilities, in Driffield, had twice previously reached this grade but, remarkably, they achieved the third title after being taken over by Westland Horticulture earlier this year.
The stringent requirements needed for BRC ‘A grade’ rating requires a site to adhere to 10 key requirements in relation to production, packaging, storage and distribution. The Driffield site marks the only current bird food producer to hold the rating.
Rachael Dickinson, marketing manager for bird care at Westland said: “All of the Westland sites have achieved incredibly high standards in quality and at Driffield we have facilities which are second to none in both the products we produce and also the way we produce them.
“The continued hard work and dedication of the staff at Driffield has certainly paid off and it is due to them that we have received this rating once again,” she added.
