“This level of certification puts BSG’s Wapato facility in very rare company in the hop industry,” says BSG Quality Assurance Manager Brandon Pierce. “Only a select few hop merchants or processors are FSSC certified. This represents a lot of hard work from a large cross-functional team.”
It’s a new year, a new decade, and a great time to reevaluate some of your brewery SOPs. As craft brewers, many of us have adopted a brewing-inspired version of the ”day you stop learning...” mantra: “The day we stop improving, is the day we turn in our boots.” Inspired by that attitude, maybe it’s time to reconsider your dry hopping procedures, or at least take a hard, educated look at them.
This certification underlines BSG’s commitment to quality, consistency and service. Food safety is important to BSG and we want our customers to be confident the ingredients provided are produced to standards above and beyond government regulations.
