Aldomak says it will expand its portfolio globally after receiving an A-grade certificate from the British Retail Consortium (BRC).

The certificate confirms the Glasgow-based company has met stringent and specific requirements for its food safety management system.

Tender for contracts

The A-Grade BRC accreditation will allow Aldomak to tender for contracts across the UK and overseas, and significantly increase turnover, building on its 21% growth this year.

Dario Riccomini, managing director, Aldomak, who took over the family firm in 2001, said the certification is a great tribute to its team, which has worked together to make Aldomak the best in its sector.

The company which makes fudge, tablet and macaroons has recently placed emphasis on social responsibility, focusing on the welfare of employees, the ethics of the supply chain and the company's carbon footprint.

ConfectioneryNews reported in May last year the company was projecting sales of £1.9m ($2.8m) for 2017 on the back of a slew of contract wins and increased activity with existing clients.

US, Canada, China

As part of a collaborative export program it is looking at the US, Canada and China amongst others. It also strengthened its management team hiring David Laing, as production manager, and David Clark, as quality manager.

Laing, who will assume responsibility for Aldomak's increasing production, formerly worked for Brownings the Baker, home of the Killie Pie, and meat products giant Vion Foods.

Clark joins the firm from Lancashire cake giant the Finsbury Food Group.

The BRC food safety standard began in the UK in the late 1990s and is now recognized as a global standard. There are more than 17,000 BRC certified sites worldwide and a large network of BRC certification bodies in 90 countries.

It is accepted by major multinational retailers including Tesco, Carrefour, ICA, Metro, Migros, Ahold, Walmart and Delhaize.
