GlassGuard® applauds new BRC Guide to Lighting Best Practice

09 September 2014

Fragment retention lamp specialist GlassGuard®, has welcomed a new Guide to Lighting Best Practice published by BRC Global Standards, the leading benchmark for quality and food safety.

The Guide to Lighting Best Practice for the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety has been published by BRC Global Standards in partnership with the Society of Light and Lighting. It aims to provide advice to food manufacturing and packaging sites to develop robust systems and procedures which adequately meet the lighting requirements of the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety.

Chris Payne of GlassGuard® says: ”GlassGuard® has been advocating safer lighting to the food processing and packaging industry for over 20 years, providing lamps and lighting fixtures specifically developed to satisfy the requirements of food safety audits. We therefore welcome the Guide to Lighting Best Practice from the BRC as it recognises the importance of lighting to food safety in a food production environment.

“It is vital that food manufacturers do not overlook their lighting when preparing for their food safety audits.”

Mark Proctor, CEO of BRC Global Standards said: “With today’s ever changing lighting technology, costly mistakes can be made leading to poor performance and uneconomical lighting installations. This Guide offers guidance on how to avoid such mistakes.”
