Sweetdreams awarded Grade 'A' for Food Safety by the BRC

Posted on 11th October 2021

Sweetdreams, British confectioners and winner of the North East ‘Small Business Award 2021’, has been awarded an ‘A’ Grade accreditation by ‘The British Retail Consortium (BRC)’ in accordance with their Global Standard for Food Safety for preparation, manufacturing and storage.

As a leading UK confectionary manufacturer based in the North East of England, Sweetdreams Ltd provides white label manufacturing for many popular and well-known chocolate brands, in addition to producing their own popular and much loved chocolate range, Choc Nibbles.

Owner and Managing director of Sweetdreams, Matthew Stephenson, said: “BRC accreditation is a benchmark of the exacting standards of food production we are enormously proud of. Achieving such a high certification means that Sweetdream’s business partners and their direct consumers can be assured our products are produced to the highest quality.

‘Receiving this accreditation, maintaining the standards, and managing a process of continuous improvement represents a significant annual milestone for Sweetdreams. It is recognition of what we represent as a business.”

Matthew Stephenson also said: “We’ve been on a growth journey and I’m really super proud of all the team! This is the third year in a row that Sweetdreams has been accredited ‘A’ grade. We’re striving for the ‘AA’ and that will happen, without a doubt. We’ve introduced improved tangible systems into the company that deliver to the standards that are expected by industry but also to the that we set ourselves. This is a direct result of the investment in the quality of our product, a skilled workforce and our business ethos.”

Sweetdreams is continuing to grow with exciting plans for a whole new brand, expansions to our current brands and continuing to provide our business partners excellent products. Having recently received the top accolade of ‘Small Business of the Year’ 2021 in the North East Business Awards we’re excited for the future of the company and the impression we can make in the world of chocolate.
