In an exciting milestone for Taipec and the bubble tea industry at large, we are thrilled to announce that we have achieved BRCGS (Brand Reputation Compliance Global Standards) certification — the first bubble tea supplier in Europe to achieve GFSI certification. This certification underscores our unwavering commitment to delivering the highest standards of quality, safety, and excellence in our products. But what exactly is BRCGS certification, and why does it matter in the world of bubble tea?
What is BRCGS Certification?
BRCGS is a globally recognised certification in food management systems recognised by GFSI. The certification is designed to ensure that companies consistently meet the highest safety, quality, and operational standards within their respective industries. Whether it's food, consumer goods, packaging, or other sectors, BRCGS certification serves as a testament to a company's dedication to excellence.
Obtaining BRCGS certification involves rigorous assessments, comprehensive internal and third-party audits, and adherence to stringent criteria set out by BRCGS. The Standard is used by major wholesalers and retailers as a part of their requirements to approve their own suppliers, along with sustainability and ethical compliance, both of which we achieved through ISO 14001 and SEDEX.
These criteria cover a wide array of factors, including product quality, safety management systems, facility cleanliness, operational processes, and overall management commitment to maintaining the highest standards. Achieving this certification is a testament to our relentless pursuit of excellence and continuous improvement in every facet of our business.
The Significance of BRCGS in the Bubble Tea Industry
The bubble tea industry has experienced explosive growth in recent years, captivating taste buds around the world with its unique flavours and textures. However, this rapid expansion has also brought about some unfavourable players to the market and a need for increased scrutiny and standardised practices that ensure product safety, quality, legality and authenticity.
Our BRCGS certification is a game-changer for the bubble tea industry, and here's why it matters:
- Enhanced Consumer Confidence: As enthusiasts of bubble tea ourselves, we understand the importance of knowing that the beverages we consume are safe and of the highest quality. BRCGS certification provides consumers with the assurance that our products meet globally recognized standards, fostering trust and confidence in our brand.
- Stringent Quality Control: Achieving BRCGS certification demands a comprehensive evaluation of our processes, from sourcing ingredients to the final preparation of our bubble tea offerings. This meticulous scrutiny ensures that we consistently maintain top-notch quality across our entire product range.
- Innovation and Development: BRCGS certification encourages continuous improvement and innovation. It motivates us to explore new techniques, ingredients, and technologies that can elevate the bubble tea experience even further, while still adhering to the highest safety and quality standards.
- Global Competitiveness: In an increasingly interconnected world, having BRCGS certification puts us on a global stage, showcasing our dedication to meeting and exceeding international industry standards. This not only strengthens our position in the market but also helps raise the overall quality benchmark for the bubble tea industry.
- Supply Chain Confidence: BRCGS certification extends beyond our own operations, encompassing our entire supply chain. This ensures that every step of the process, from sourcing raw materials to delivering the final product, is conducted with the same level of commitment to quality and safety.
- Sustainability Focus: The BRCGS certification process also includes aspects of sustainability and responsible business practices. This aligns with our values and allows us to contribute to a more sustainable future for the bubble tea industry and the planet as a whole.
