Southern Champion Tray’s Fairfield Plant Achieves AA BRC Rating

August 19, 2022

Southern Champion Tray is proud to announce that our Fairfield, Ohio plant, which makes our corrugated boxes, has successfully earned a AA BRC rating for 2022!

Over the past two years, the team in Fairfield has diligently worked to improve the facility’s rating by implementing a rigorous cleaning program that documents daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly tasks -- there is even a swab test conducted weekly on product belts and employee gloves. In addition to the cleaning program, there are new LED lights to brighten the plant, and improved facility flow and infrastructure with new security cameras and communication boards.

A hard-working team of over 60 people contributed to making the AA BRC rating possible and we are so proud of each of them. They have truly exhibited the SCT Mission & Values of Serving Customers and being Resourceful and Servant-Hearted in all we do. We have every confidence that Fairfield will continue to achieve this important distinction year after year.

Thank you to all who played an important part in Fairfield’s achievement!

The BRC rating system is becoming more and more widely recognized as the standard for food safety and ensures customer confidence worldwide. The AA rating is the highest rating given by BRC Global Standards and is issued on an annual basis. Southern Champion Tray’s (SCT) Chattanooga, TN and Mansfield, TX plants are also rated as AA BRC for 2022.
