Oakland International Receives BRCGS A Grades Across Network

Total supply chain solutions provider Oakland International has received a BRCGS AA+ grade for two of its depots following unannounced inspections, the company revealed today.

Oakland International is one of the first businesses in its sector to achieve BRCGS accreditation.

What Is BRCGS?

BRCGS stands for Brand Reputation through Compliance Global Standard.

Its accreditation is internationally recognised as the ‘global standard’ for storage and distribution in the supply chain.

The standard encompasses all actions undertaken that might impact safety, quality and legality of products handled and stored.


The standard is viewed as a cross-function responsibility.

All Oakland International’s depots across Ireland and the UK are BRCGS AA graded.

Oakland International

Oakland International is a certified B corporation.

It operates in direct to consumer, case consolidation, contract packing, storage and distribution, food tempering and brand development support for ambient, chilled, and frozen food, servicing retail, convenience, discount, wholesale and food service markets in the UK and Ireland.

It is also a distress load management specialist, saving food and non-food products from going to waste.


Oakland International is working towards becoming the first business in its sector to achieve net zero.

The group’s supply chain certification and compliance manager Louise Smith welcomed the accreditation, thanking the Oakland International team.

Smith said, “This is a tremendous result and down to the sheer dedication and hard work of every depot team member who maintain these exacting quality standards, not just when they know an audit is due but as this result clearly demonstrates, year-round.”

She added, “Securing BRCGS’s AA+ rating is a clear endorsement for customers and our supply chain partners that they can have absolute faith in every area of Oakland’s operation, from product safety to quality and legality, that they won’t be compromised in any way.”
