We are Micron2, a business with long experience and heritage operating in the world of food auditing and certification, product specifications and labels, product sampling, quality systems and training. Though we are firmly anchored to the UK we have a long reach with auditors based around the world. We are always available for a discussion, informal or otherwise to help you through the audit process or any of our services.
Now in its 7th version, the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety (aka the BRC Food Standard) remains the most recognised international standard for food operations in all sectors. It was the first of its kind and is still sometimes referred to simply as the “BRC Standard”.
BRC S&D Standard Issue 3 is now with us. This Standard continues to grow in importance since publication of Issue 1 over 10 years ago. As part of our service of BRC audits we would be happy to discuss an audit by one of our experienced team of auditors.
This recent addition to the suite of BRC Global Standards was published in January 2014. It fills a gap in the current Standards suite and enables this vital sector of the industry to achieve certification against a globally recognised Standard. We are now offering accredited audits against this new Standard.
At Micron2 we have supplied tailored supplier audits for retailers and purchasing groups since we began. We have food (and non-food) safety documents that we can audit against for you or we can work with you on your own supplier requirements as a basis for audit.
This is a major part of the services that we provide. We have an experienced team for checking food labels against legal requirements and creating and approving final product specifications. We can assist with well-known online customer specification portals or help with your internal systems. We also have test kitchen facilities for routine food and non-food product assessment.
We have a BRC Approved Training Provider in our team and can offer a range of official BRC Courses. We can also offer some in-house courses in HACCP and Internal Audit and for all courses we can hold training sessions in our training room at Betton Mill, or we can come to your site for training of numbers of your staff.
James has been with the company since 2003. He looks after all the administration of auditing work in terms of contract review and deadlines for corrective actions and report completion.
Ron has been in the food industry since 1974. In 1990 with Michael Ranken he formed Micron Laboratories, which became Micron2 in 2001. As well as developing the business he spends time witnessing our auditors around the world.

Very professional and thorough audit with good support provided in the closing meeting. Jeremy was very experienced in businesses of our type and size and the whole process from pre audit to post audit was conducted very efficiently. Thank you.
Our audit was completed in a professional manner and the auditor was flexible to suit business requirements over the two day period.
The auditor, Andy Burne interacted very well with operators and put them at ease to allow effective questioning and understanding of their roles.
The non conformance close process out was efficient, with very quick responses from admin and regular updates to conclusion and issue of the certificate. I will certainly continue to use Micron2 as an auditing body and would strongly recommend them to fellow professionals.
