Hygiene certificate for Billerud Gruvön

Billerud’s Gruvön mill has received a hygiene certificate in accordance with the BRC/IoP Technical Standard for food packaging. The standard has been developed by the British Retail Consortium of Packaging. Hygiene certification increases opportunities to deliver paper for applications based on food packaging. Around 50% of Billerud’s deliveries of packaging paper currently go to what can be defined broadly as the food sector. The certificate is proof of systematic and preventative work on product safety issues. BVQI (Bureau Veritas Quality International) will make regular audits of Billerud to check that standards are being maintained.
