    There is a common view that there are benefits to Food Business Operators (FBOs) that are certificated as well as brands or retailers that specify them within their supply chains. While these benefits are well publicised, there is a lack of hard evidence on the economic and operational benefits to either certificated FBOs or in the wider supply chain. This research seeks to redress this lack of evidence by using internal and external datasets to identify the value of certification for certified FBOs, the wider supply chain, and on safer food for consumers. This paper will also explore whether certification to BRCGS programmes provides additional value over other GFSI and non-GFSI standards in terms of food safety, top-line growth, profitability, modernisation and operational efficiency. This has been carried out through demand-side interviews with large Brands, a review of extant literature on certification and food safety standards, and data from the results of a survey of around 450 FBOs.
