KQF Given Top ‘AA’ Rating by BRC

April 24, 2017 at 12:20 pm

BRCFollowing inspections earlier this year, the British Retail Consortium (BRC) has upgraded KQF’s accredited status from ‘A’ to ‘AA’ – the highest possible rating for a UK retailer.

KQF first approached BRC in 2013 with a view to gaining accreditation, and it was successful in that first year. In every year since then, the company had consistently maintained a grade A rating, but now it has gone a step better.

The AA rating was first introduced in 2015 under the BRC’s Global Standard for Food Safety, issue 7. The BRC notes that: “Issue 7 requirements were updated with a focus on improved transparency in the supply chain, food fraud and substitution risk assessment, reduction in product recalls attributed to incorrect labelling, brand protection, and legal compliance. As a result, two new fundamental sections and five new sections were added to BRC’s Food Safety Standard.”

In short, KQF has met the highest possible standards under an accreditation system that has itself been made more stringent. This represents a significant achievement, as KQF managing director, Faruk Vali explains:

“We can be very proud of the new double-A rating,” he said. “It has taken hard work and investment to get us here but it has been well worth the effort. It means we can demonstrate to all customers and potential customers that we adhere to the very highest standards – and that we are maintaining those standards day after day, year after year.

“I’d like to thank and congratulate the KQF team on securing this new, higher rating. It will give added confidence to our clients and distributors, and – together with our proven halal credentials – it will help underpin our plans for expansion in the days ahead.”

The BRC AA rating comes at a helpful time for KQF. This spring sees the launch of several exciting products including a range of new marinades and KQF Shish Chicken Kebab Bites, which will be followed by a lamb version later in the year.

British sausage week

November 3, 2016 at 9:46 am

Considered a British staple, the humble sausage can be traced back to the 19th Century. After the onset of World War One, food was rationed heavily, which led to the dramatic decrease of meat in sausages. Instead, manufacturers bulked sausages out with scraps, cereal and water. This caused them to pop and hiss frantically when cooked on shovels over open fires in the trenches. Sometimes they even exploded. Hence, bearing the name Bangers!

Did you know that sausages are even older than Ancient Greece? The Sumerians (modern day Iraq) made sausages 5,000 years ago.

In order to appreciate (and eat!) sausages; as well as to celebrate the great lengths sausages have come to, KQF are proud to be part of British Sausage Week. It is time to celebrate the sausage, and what better way than to experience KQF’s diverse variety? Our sausages are ‘bulked’ up full of flavour, and meat…certainly not cereal!

Did you know that a staggering 1.26 billion meals containing sausage are eaten in the home each year?

Whether sizzling on a summer BBQ, heaped with ketchup in a hot dog, or a hearty plate of bangers and mash, our sausages are sure to satisfy everyone. Our classic sausages, available in beef or chicken, are made to our renowned fiesta recipe, and can be grilled, barbecued or pan fried. Blended with authentic herbs, and spices, with a gentle fiery kick, these are perfect for a quick and easy dinner.

KQF Halal SausagesSausage rolls can be identified as the life and soul of any party or buffet (well we think so anyway!), and our spicy mini sausage rolls, make perfect finger food, (or grab a handful food), for everyone. These are easy to cook and are made from carefully seasoned chicken, nestled in layers of puff pastry. Mini in size, but mighty in taste!

So whether they form a part the most important meal of the day, or are tucked in between fresh bread, there is no doubt sausages are integral in British life. Celebrate the Sausage, and tantalise your taste buds with our sausages, packed with goodness.
