Badger Brewery acknowledged for food safety and quality with AA grade accreditation

July 2019

The Hall & Woodhouse Badger Brewery received the highest possible accreditation from British Retail Consortium Certification, an internationally recognised body for food safety and quality.

Following an in-depth audit at Hall & Woodhouse’s Brewery in Blandford, the company received an AA grade accreditation and the auditors raised no areas of improvement following the visit. The auditors also praised the Brewery for its high standards of hygiene, its advanced systems and the conduct and culture of its team.

In 2012 due to the success of Hall & Woodhouse’s iconic Badger ales being stocked nationally in leading supermarkets and in 15 different countries worldwide, the company made a significant investment into a new state-of-the-art Brewery in Blandford, just a stone’s throw from its former site. The Brewery now has the technology and equipment required to secure the future of brewing Badger in Dorset and allow for future growth over the next 100 years.

Toby Heasman, Head Brewer at Hall & Woodhouse, said: “I am incredibly proud of my team and our Brewery for achieving the highest possible accreditation for our food safety and quality. We work hard to ensure we produce the finest Badger ales for people to enjoy in our pubs and at home and I am pleased to hear this has been acknowledged through this certification.

“The auditors even let me know that this is the first time he has carried out an inspection and not raised a single action, which is something that we are very proud of.”
