Pacmoore Receives Grade A PMO and BRC/GFSI Certifications


Nov 09, 2009

PacMoore, a contract manufacturer of dry ingredients, announced it recently received Grade "A" PMO (Pasteurized Milk Ordinance) certification in addition to becoming BRC certified to meet the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standard.

Grade "A" PMO

Grade "A" PMO is the basic standard used in governing the processing, packaging, and sale of Grade "A" milk and milk products. With the Grade "A" PMO certification, PacMoore has become the only dry powder dairy milk handler in the State of Indiana that is approved to process Grade "A" dry dairy products.

BRC Certification

The BRC (British Retail Consortium) was the first certification standard recognized by the increasingly popular Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmark. The BRC standard sets requirements for food safety, quality, and integrity for companies that are involved in the processing or preparation of food or food ingredients.

The BRC provides a simple yet thorough two-fold approach to food safety: identify health hazards and establish and maintain safety measures to prevent those hazards. This accredited, certifiable standard is the most used GFSI standard with over 10,500 certificated sites worldwide
