Kingston Carton has been awarded Grade AA+ for BRCGS Packaging Materials Standard certification - one of the packaging industry’s highest accreditations. 


Grade AA+ is the highest possible achievement, and can only be awarded after a successful unannounced audit pass. 

Unannounced audits occur once every three years and provide companies with an opportunity to:

  • Demonstrate confidence in their systems and procedures, to the extent that they can be subjected to unannounced scrutiny.
  • Adopt an audit ready food safety culture.
  • Improve customer confidence, by providing their customers with an independent unannounced review of systems and procedures that demonstrates they are maintaining their systems in good order.   

The BRCGS Packaging Materials Global Standard helps us demonstrate we are providing products that are quality assured, legally compliant, and authentic.  The first to be recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), BRCGS Packaging Materials has become the global industry benchmark. It is not only used by food packaging producers but also by producers of packaging for all applications, across the supply chain.  Our BRCGS certification demonstrates our commitment to producing safe, high-quality packaging for the consumer.
