Ossett Recognised for Food Safety & Quality

Ossett Brewery has been awarded one of the first Food Safety and Quality Certificates to be accredited by SIBA (the Society of Independent Brewers).
The SIBA FSQ was launched in late 2015 to provide retailers with an independently assessed quality management mark to help them identify high-quality brewers in a crowded and competitive market place. Our Head Brewer, Paul Spencer, was awarded the unique standard following a rigorous audit of our brewery and practices back in December.

The scheme is administered by a SIBA-employed food technologist, and the one-day audit is carried out by independent inspectors. All elements of brewing practises from storage and handling of raw materials through to record keeping and safety at work fall under the remit of the audit.
Paul says “We’re really pleased to have been audited and accredited. The award is testament to the hard work and high standards of the brewing team at Ossett and will help give our customers confidence in the consistency of our processes and quality of our beers.

Launching the award, Mike Benner, managing director of SIBA, said: “We have launched the scheme because we want to ensure quality and because retailers have told us that they want the reassurance of an independent audit. It is a crucial point as retailers increasingly demand accreditation through such a scheme. I hope brewers will see the very real benefits of SIBA now having its own scheme to promote self-improvement.”
