For 60 years, you have trusted Joyce Farms to provide you with safe, high-quality meat and poultry products. Our USDA-inspected plant in Winston Salem, NC has multiple HACCP plans in place to ensure safe practices, and we have continually received high marks on third party GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) audits. Now, we are thrilled to announce that we have achieved British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Food Safety Certification at our poultry processing plant.
The BRCGS Global Food Safety Standard is a leading global quality and food safety certification program that is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). It provides a framework to manage product safety, integrity, legality and quality, and the operational controls for these criteria in the food and food ingredient manufacturing, processing and packing industry. Certification is only awarded to organizations that have embraced a top-to-bottom food safety culture and approach throughout their company.
To achieve this, our team undertook a rigorous third-party audit against certification requirements. The audit examined an extensive list of our company programs related to food safety, including, but not limited to, sanitation, pest control, recall and traceability, allergen control, pathogen/salmonella testing, and supplier approval.

While this was truly a company-wide effort, our path to certification was led by Joyce Farms’ Quality Assurance Manager Jennifer Hamby. Her enthusiasm, guidance, and attention to detail were invaluable as we worked together to reach this goal.
At Joyce Farms, we always want to offer our customers the very best, and the BRCGS Global Food Safety Standard is what we believe to be the best and most respected food safety certification in the world. With this certification, we look forward to offering you an even deeper level of trust in our products.
