For 9th Consecutive Year, Swaggerty’s Receives Highest Possible Grade from BRC Food Safety Auditors Following Monumental Brand Growth
KODAK, TN – As we enter 2022, Swaggerty Sausage Company, for now the ninth consecutive year, has received the highest possible grade from BRC Food Safety auditors. BRC is a globally recognized consumer protection organization used by more than 29,000 certified suppliers in over 130 countries, and BRC Food Safety audits are considered the “gold standard.”
From 2015 to 2021, Swaggerty's grade has been AA, with top grades of A received in 2013 and 2014. Quality assurance programs, certifications, and training by specialized food safety organizations like HACCP, PAACO, and Pork Checkoff serve to maintain best-in-class safety practices and assurances for brands like Swaggerty’s.
This honor follows a year of immense growth for Swaggerty’s, as they moved to larger facilities with new equipment. Achieving top food safety grades with unfamiliar warehousing and freezers is just part of the tradition of quality and food safety has been a tradition Swaggerty Sausage Company has maintained during the last ninety-one years of brand growth, since the company was founded in 1930 by Lonas Swaggerty. The tradition continues in his honor, evidenced in these recent high marks for the quality department, skilled experts, and tenured workforce of this 3rd generation, American-family-owned and operated company.
