BRC Global Standard for Food Safety (Issue 7), Global Markets Programme

Transylvania Food Company Srl is pleased to announce that following an audit by DQS Romania it has been confirmed that we meet the requirements set out in the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety (Issue 7), Global Markets Programme, an entry level programme specifically designed for smaller and developing sites. We are the first micro-enterprise in Romania to achieve this status.

The BRC Global Standard has become a market leading brand that provides confidence and assurances to the food industry. The standard ensures good manufacturing practice and the safety of food products and was first created in 1998 in response to industry needs. The food standard was designed to ensure retailers wholesalers and brand owners were able to produce safe food products at a consistent quality. There are now 41 Romanian companies listed in the BRC Directory.

In our efforts reduce and even remove single use plastic, we found new and more sustainable alternatives. That is why we have replaced bubble wrap with Hexcel wrapping paper, why we now seal our boxes with paper tape instead of plastic, why we use biodegradable shrink wrap for our pallets and recyclable carrier bags made out paper instead of plastic.

Waste recycling

Each household produces around 1 tonne of rubbish each year. There is an acute need to recycle more of the waste we produce, in order to help our planet, which is the reason we signed contracts not only to recycle our plastic waste, but also our metal, glass and paper waste.


We here at Pivniţa Bunicii understand that each one of us can have a positive impact on our environment and that is the reason that we sell our products in jars and bottles made out of glass instead of plastic. We also upcycle our cordial bottles, and use them as glasses for our tastings or as vases for our wonderful meadow flowers. Our upcycled jars are being used as little bowls for our chutneys and jam for our Taste Experiences.
