Colour Innovations Earns BRC Global Standard (BRCGS) Certification for Packaging Materials 

The company’s 45,000-square-foot facility with seventy-five employees. We produce innovative packaging materials for the most trusted food manufacturers in Canada

Toronto, January 11, 2022 — For more than thirty-five years, Colour Innovations Inc. has been a pioneer in the packaging industry, introducing some of the top sustainable packaging and design innovations to food manufacturers in Canada. To continue progressing their offerings and work towards their ESG goals, the company has now secured the BRCGS Certification for Packaging Materials Issue 6, recognizing their rigorous safety and quality standards throughout the production process on a global scale. 

Colour Innovations underwent an extensive 16-month audit to achieve this certificate, which specifically covers converting paperboard sheets to carton boxes intended for direct and indirect contact with food and all the affiliated elements of the production process, from the point at which an order is received to when it is completed. All steps were reviewed and adjusted accordingly to ensure complete accountability and transparency. Evaluation included everything from the chemicals used for cleaning to guaranteeing that only food grade lubricants are used in manufacturing. 

Carlo D’Onofrio, President of Colour Innovations, sees the certification as a pivotal endorsement of the quality and integrity of the incredible team at Colour Innovations. 

“We have some of the best talent in the industry and together we’ve created a company where people can make their mark and share their passion, offering an antidote to the more mundane and traditional packaging manufacturers out there,” explained D’Onofrio. “We’re all about perfecting first impressions and the BRGCS certificate does just that, demonstrating our team’s commitment to continually improving our services and products that will now be benchmarked against global standards.”
