Food product specifications

We have been involved in the production of food quality specifications for canned and quick frozen primary products for over 40 years. Written by manufacturers and retailers from the industry, these cover product colour, flavour, and texture, as well as tolerances for specific defects. They can be used as a standard in their own right, or as a basis for companies to negotiate their own quality standards. Applicable to both UK and imported food products, these specifications were written and validated by Campden BRI industrial Working Parties (specification clubs) which include representatives from food manufacturers, caterers, importers, distributors, co–operatives and retailers. Using text and tables these are practical guides to quality standards, which are unambiguous and easy to interpret. Where appropriate, illustrations are used to clarify terms and definitions used.


Specifications cover all updated canned fruit, canned vegetables and pasta, canned meat and fish, and quick frozen fruit and vegetables.
