Hammond, IN (October 2009) — PacMoore, an Indiana based contract manufacturer of dry ingredients, is proud to announce that it recently received Grade “A” PMO (Pasteurized Milk Ordinance) certification in addition to becoming BRC certified to meet the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standard.
GRADE “A” PMO
Grade “A” PMO is the basic standard used in governing the processing, packaging, and sale of Grade “A” milk and milk products. With the Grade “A” PMO certification, PacMoore has become the only dry powder dairy milk handler in the State of Indiana that is approved to process Grade “A” dry dairy products.
“Given that we are already approved to produce Kosher, Gluten Free, Organic, and Halal products, this new Grade A certification adds an exciting new range of product options for customers who choose to trust PacMoore with their processing and packaging needs” stated Chris Bekermeier, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at PacMoore.
The BRC (British Retail Consortium) was the first certification standard recognized by the increasingly popular Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmark. The BRC standard sets requirements for food safety, quality, and integrity for companies that are involved in the processing or preparation of food or food ingredients.
The BRC provides a simple yet thorough two-fold approach to food safety: identify health hazards and establish and maintain safety measures to prevent those hazards. This accredited, certifiable standard is the most used GFSI standard with over 10,500 certificated sites worldwide.
“PacMoore has created a culture of continuous improvement, learning and training to meet food safety needs,” said Giri Veeramuthu, Vice President of Quality at PacMoore. “We are pleased to receive the BRC certification to provide further peace of mind to our clients who trust us as an extension of their operations.”
PacMoore is currently the only dry powder dairy milk handler in the State of Indiana that is approved to process Grade “A” dry dairy products.
