BRCGS has announced the launch of the Plant-Based Issue 1 Standard.
The BRCGS Plant-Based Global Standard has been developed in response to a shift in consumer purchasing behaviour, resulting in the rapidly growing demand for plant-based products and the need for brands to ensure consumer-facing claims are validated.
Plant-based products are relatively novel, and the industry has been challenged with meeting consumer demands while also protecting brand reputation and mitigating risk.
The Plant-Based Global Standard has been developed to provide certainty for industry and consumers alike.
The Plant-Based Global Standard is based on a comprehensive management system approach and provides framework for manufacturers to assist them in the production of plant-based food.
It includes operational criteria required to be in place to ensure plant-based products are free of material of animal origin.
Even the most informed consumer may unknowingly consume animal products or ingredients due to the challenge of correctly identifying animal-containing ingredients based on product labelling information alone.
BRCGS has introduced a Plant-Based Global Standard on-pack trademark that will help consumers to make informed choices quickly and easily.
The trademark will allow brands and products to differentiate themselves. The Plant-Based Global Standard will provide confidence to consumers and industry alike.
The Plant-Based Global Standard applies only to the control of animal inputs in plant-based products, in the manufacture, processing and packing of: processed foods (both own brand and customer branded); ingredients for use by food service companies, catering companies, and food manufacturers; pet foods (GFSI benchmarked schemes only) and
natural health products.
