Arnarlax received BRC AA plus grade
The Icelandic salmon farming company Arnarlax has received an AA plus grade in the all important BRC (British Retail Consortium) certification.
The certification is recognised by supermarkets and large organisations as proof that high food safety standards are in place and that a food company is safe to supply.
BRC certification is also approved by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), which means that processes in Arnarlax’s processing plant meet quality and food safety standards internationally.
Arnarlax said: “Customers can rest assured that here our salmon is processed in the best possible way with quality and food safety at the forefront throughout the processing until it is delivered to the customer.”
“Companies who participate in the unannounced BRC audit choose to be challenged at the highest level, confirmed by the plus sign at the end of the score. The auditor may arrive at the company any time after a certain date, so everyone needs to be ready at all times.
“Our BRC AA+ rating is a huge compliment to all the hardworking and dedicated employees who are always focused on achieving excellence every single day.”
Arnarlax has also announced that Linda Gunnlaugsdóttir (pictured) has started at the company as CSO (Chief Sales Officer).
The company said Linda is a strong leader with vast management experience, most recently from sales of fish and logistics. She will work from Arnarlax sales office in Reykjavík.
The company added: “Arnarlax is very happy to have Linda on board and looks forward to the collaboration and her contribution to our strong team.”
