Pecan Deluxe Europe - setting the food safety standard

13 October 2014

Leading inclusions specialist Pecan Deluxe Candy (Europe) has demonstrated the success of its commitment to continuous improvement of internal processes and controls, with the achievement of a BRC6 ‘A’ level accreditation.   

Generally acknowledged as technically one of the toughest standards to meet, the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety covers a broad spectrum of assessment ranging from Quality Management Systems to evidence of continual improvement. Pecan Deluxe’s achievement comes hot on the heels of significant investment, firstly in a new, dedicated European cold extrusions plant; and more recently in a bespoke bagging system to meet growing demand for flexible packaging solutions, in conjunction with rapid turnaround of bulk orders for the QSR sector. The management team has also been strengthened with senior appointments and promotions and operational processes scrutinised in order to maximise efficiency.

The pioneer of the use of cookie dough in ice cream, Pecan Deluxe is now the biggest European supplier of cookie dough pieces in a range of sizes, which feature in many household name premium ice creams as well as QSR and gastro-pub desserts. All Pecan Deluxe products – ranging from sugar sprinkles and chocolate pieces to brownie chunks and pralines - are made entirely of natural ingredients in segregated facilities, and the company is constantly innovating to meet demand from a growing number of manufacturers for new flavour and texture options.

European Managing Director Graham Kingston explained: “The BRC6 A-grade is a very welcome endorsement of the recent efforts and major investment that have enabled Pecan Deluxe Europe to push for maximum performance in all our target areas. We pride ourselves on our product quality, our versatility, speed and superb service levels; customers can now be reassured that our quality management and safety systems have passed one of the most stringent standards in the world – and with flying colours.”
