The BRC Global Standards are used by certification bodies across the world to enable suppliers to achieve globally-recognised standards for food products and to ensure that best practice is established and maintained.

To achieve certification, O’ Toole Transport was audited and scored by independent assessors on the standard of storage and distribution of ambient, chilled and frozen food products, product inspection, and quality control procedures operated in both sites.
