Sanitarium achieves Australian logistics first

Sanitarium recently became the first and only company in Australia to hold AA+ certification under the BRC Global Storage and Distribution Standard, the highest possible grading.

Sanitarium’s distribution operations are audited annually under BRC Global Standards, a market-leading global brand that operates the most rigorous third-party certification scheme of its type, setting the benchmark for good manufacturing practice

About 18 months ago Sanitarium’s operations moved from ‘planned audits’, which involves advanced notice of the audit date, to ‘unannounced audits’, in which the auditor arrives on site unannounced. The first audit occurred this month and resulted in an AA+ grading

Sanitarium is the first company in Australia, in any industry, to commit to the unannounced audit process under the Standard

National Warehouse Manager Ric Morrey explained: “This is an awesome result, only achieved through the sustained effort and focus of the Warnervale and Berkeley Vale DC teams. We can be rightly proud of this outcome, a real measure of our capability and commitment to excelling in what we do.”
