Shearer Candles has become the first UK candle manufacturer to receive a British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standard Award.
The BRC's Consumer Product Standard Issue 3 was awarded to Shearer Candles following a rigorous audit. The award is regarded as the benchmark for best practice and has evolved into a Global Standard for quality. It sets out the requirements for the production and supply of safe and legal consumer products of consistent quality.
"Everything we strive to do at Shearer Candles is about producing high quality candles. That includes everything from the raw materials we use to our manufacturing processes to the skills of our expert employees. The BRC Global Standard endorses our hard work and gives our customers confidence in everything we do and make," said Shearer Candles managing director Ian Barnet.
Shearer Candles was founded in Glasgow in 1897 and has developed from a small company producing church candles into a business that makes millions of lifestyle candles every year. The company reports a 267% increase in exports to Europe after taking part in three exhibitions in Paris over the past 12 months.
Shearer Candles can now be purchased in Poland, Sweden, Finland and Norway as well as France, Germany, Japan and Greece.
