KM Packaging, a global flexible packaging and lidding films supplier, has been awarded an AA grade in its BRCGS Audit for the third year running. The award reflects KM Packaging's Product Safety & Quality Policy that states the practices and procedures, which include the following:

  • Commitment to ensuring that the organization provides safe and legal products and are compliant with applicable regulations, legislation and other requirements.
  • Commitment to maintaining its responsibilities to its customers.
  • Zero customer complaints relating to products being unsafe for food contact or not conforming to promised quality and to continually improve the effectiveness of our product safety and quality management system.

The double AA grade is also a result of KM's "Six Cs" — six of the characteristics the organization values:

  1. Clever: using years of knowledge and expertise.
  2. Capable: with a strong team of industry experts.
  3. Creative: offering imagination, innovation, and original ideas.
  4. Consistent: always providing customers with the highest level of service and being conscientious regarding regulations on food and packaging.
  5. Comprehensive: from sustainable mono-material solutions to the high-pressure processing of packaged food, KM offers a broad range of flexible packaging solutions, including one of the most extensive ranges of lidding films available on the global marketplace today.
  6. Caring: spending time with customers to fully understand their needs. And also being concerned about the environment.

The BRCGS award is a testament to the professionalism of our team. I want to thank them for their commitment. We're delighted to have gained the AA rating for the third year running."
