BRCGS plant-based certification

Providing consumer confidence in the production of plant-based foods.

BRCGS Plant-Based certification ensures your plant-based production methods are safe and authentic, avoiding contamination of animal by-products.



Developed in response to a rapidly growing demand for plant-based products, the BRCGS Plant-Based Global Standard is designed to protect your brand and reputation and provide your customers with buying confidence. Based on a comprehensive management system approach, the standard framework assists you in the production of all plant-based food, and gives you access to the plant-based trademark that will differentiate your organisation from your competitors.

At LRQA, we are the first certification body approved to audit against this new standard, which is globally recognised, and complements and combines audits with all existing GFSI-benchmarked standards.
