Throughout United Bakery’s growth, we’ve been able to maintain the delicate balance between old-world bread making and modern technology. Inside our 28,000 square foot facility are powerful mixers that handle 500 pounds of dough at a time.
Our cavernous walk-in refrigerators and scores of rack ovens enable us to put out enormous amounts of bread without cheating on production.
We’re never satisfied with the status quo. Our continued efforts to streamline our process and raise the bar on product quality have put United Bakery products on the shelves of some of the most respected health food stores in the country.
Certified: British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard for Food Safety and Quality
Our facility was awarded the prestigious grade of ‘A’ continuously since 2011. By achieving and maintaining BRC certification, United Bakery is able to compete in global markets.
GFSI and BRC Global Standards
GFSI is a worldwide initiative that was set up in 2000 by the world’s leading retailers and food manufacturers. Its aim is to standardize international food safety standards and reduce the need for multiple supplier audits. At its inception, the GFSI Technical Committee looked at the Standards already in operation worldwide and identified the key areas for good food safety. They then created a benchmark that all Standards had to reach to get GFSI approval.
Because of its ability to react quickly to changing food safety concerns, meet customer requirements, and provide an easy to follow process for manufacturers, the BRC Global Standards for Food Safety was the first Standard to be recognized by GFSI in 2000. Each issue has been approved and recognized ever since and has ensured the BRC Global Standard is the most used GFSI approved Standard worldwide, with over 18,000 certificated sites.
Highly Trained Auditors Worldwide
BRC audits are carried out by a global network of highly trained certification bodies and training providers. They have exceptionally high standards when it comes to the competence, qualifications and experience of auditors, and they’re closely monitored too. This ensures the audit standards are stringently maintained.
The Non-GMO Project’s Product Verification Program (PVP)is a process-based and product-based program designed to assess compliance with the Non-GMO Project Standard. The core requirements are traceability, segregation, and testing of high-risk ingredients at critical control points. The verification process is handled by independent, third-party technical administrators (TAs) who determine if a product complies with the Project Standard.
Our Non-GMO Products: Round, Small Boule, Traditional Batard, Baguette, Petite Baguette, Dinner Rolls.
The retailers who started the Non-GMO Project were motivated by a simple idea: they believed that consumers in North America should have access to clearly-labeled non-GMO food and products, now and in the future. That conviction continues to be the guiding force behind the Non-GMO Project, which offers North America’s only independent verification for products made according to best practices for GMO avoidance.
Values-driven companies have led the way with the Non-GMO Project. As you can see from the Boardmembers who have diligently thought through creative solutions to the many challenges posed by GMOs, this is truly a collaborative effort by some of the most inspiring and influential leaders in the organic & natural products industry. North Americans deserve clearly labeled, independently-verified non-GMO choices, and the Non-GMO Project is committed to giving it to them.
