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.”

New KQF Website

In September 2013, we launched our new-look KQF website, together with an online shop where customers can buy an array of our most popular products. Also now on sale are several newly developed burgers and sausages , which you can see in our Frozen/KQF Premium section.

The new site features a new bonus point system that enables clients to make savings with every online purchase. Every point is worth a penny and they can be saved up or spent whenever you shop on the site.

The new website also provides details of our halal certification and quality assurance systems, our contract manufacturing capabilities and much else besides.

We hope you enjoy using the new site but if you have any queries or suggestions, please let us know.
