BRC Renews KQF’s ‘AA’ Rating

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) regularly inspects KQF’s operations to verify that we’re maintaining our standards. This year, after a recent visit, the BRC announced that we would again be awarded its highest ‘AA’ rating.

We first sought BRC accreditation in 2013 and initially obtained an impressive grade A rating. This improved to AA in 2017 and we’re pleased to have maintained it for 2019.

What this means for customers is that KQF has met the highest possible standards under the UK’s most stringent and widely recognised accreditation system. This represents a significant achievement, as KQF managing director, Faruk Vali acknowledges:

“A double-A rating is a real endorsement of all our efforts and investment,” he said. “The team has worked really hard to uphold our very high standards and I’m proud of everything we’ve achieved together. It’s also an important gauge for customers; we’re in a competitive, quality-focused business, so this gives retailers and other buyers the confidence that we’re maintaining exceptional quality, year on year.

“The retail sector will always be extremely important to us, so this rating, together with our HMC halal credentials, puts us in a very strong position to expand the business in 2020 and beyond.”

KQF New website

New Look for KQF Website

If you’re a regular visitor to the KQF website, you’ll have noticed that we’ve now got a whole new look.

We’ve been seeing increasing attention from superstores and other big retailers in recent months, so we felt it was important that the website should provide them with more of the information they need. As a result, we’ve given the site a new layout and a new look, so that business customers can find that information much more quickly and easily.

Earlier this year, we announced that we’d be closing down the online shopping cart system. That’s another important change you’ll see on the new site. Happily, however, our products are now stocked more widely than ever before, so wherever you live in the UK, it should be easy to buy your KQF products locally. If you’d like to know where your nearest KQF stockists are, please email us at and we’ll be glad to send you a list. (Please put ‘KQF Stockists’ in your subject line.)

We’re always on the look-out for new and better ways to meet our customers’ needs and to bring our products to a growing range of markets. This is one step in that direction, but there will be others coming soon. We expect to make a number of announcements about new developments within the business that will make it quicker and easier than ever to get your KQF shopping.

This website will carry on as usual – providing news about product launches, special events, promotions and other items of interest, so please do keep calling in from time to time. And, of course, you can also keep up to date without latest news and announcements by following us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
