Manitoba Harvest aces food safety recertification

Improving BRC Certification standing to an A grade showcases hemp company's commitment to continuous improvement.

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods announced that its facility aced the British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standards Re-Certification. The largest hemp food manufacturer in the world to grow, make, and sell their own hemp foods, Manitoba Harvest improved a full ‘grade’ from its first certification last year.

“Improving our BRC Certification standing to a ‘A-Grade’ showcases our commitment to continuous improvement—especially when it comes to food safety and quality” explained Mike Fata, chief executive officer and co-founder of Manitoba Harvest. “If a school had a hemp production program we’d already have our PhD. Receiving a top grade in our re-certification validates our team’s commitment to quality.”

BRC Certification is the leading global food safety and quality certification program and currently used by suppliers in over 100 countries. To receive BRC Certification, Manitoba Harvest underwent a voluntary audit by a third-party Certification Body that ensures the production, packaging, storage and distribution of safe food and consumer products. The annual certification is meant to reassure retailers and end consumers of the capability and competence of Manitoba Harvest’s facility and therefore the integrity of Manitoba Harvest products.
