Our two production sites at the above-mentioned locations and warehouses are subject to an annual audit in which the quality standard and food safety are assessed. In the course of this audit, which is conducted in accordance with the BRC Packaging standard, all internal quality processes were reviewed, and we are delighted to announce we have had another successful outcome this year.
On another note, we have opted not to extend the trial of the FSSC 22000 quality standard this year, since we have reached the conclusion that this standard has failed to gain the popularity expected for it in the packaging industry. Similarly, a recent change in the FSSC 22000 also makes the standard less compatible with our business operations, and with BRC Packaging and FSSC 22000 largely overlapping, it simply doesn’t make sense to maintain both quality systems.
BRC Certificate Dijkstra Plastics 2021
We see the maintenance of AA status for the GFSI-approved BRC Packaging standard at both our locations as the most significant achievement of a dedicated team. All year round, this team has been working with everybody on the shop floor to standardise the hygiene and monitoring of every bucket that leaves our factory.
BRCGS certification renewed again
In the autumn of 2022, the audit for the BRCGS certification took place at Dijkstra Plastics. BRCGS is a standard for food safety. This standard describes the hygiene and food safety requirements for food processing companies that supply directly to the retail sector.

FIRE-OFF: our new start-up for circular plastic production
We are proud to announce that we have started a new start-up to make the production of recycled plastic buckets circular: FIRE-OFF. On the initiative of Dijkstra Plastics, painting companies, the hospitality industry and festival organisations are personally approached to save empty buckets and to hand them in at the weekly FIRE-OFF pick-up point.
Exhibitions: Fachpack & Scanpack
Dijkstra Plastics exhibits at FachPack and Scanpack! ?
At Dijkstra Plastics we undertake daily efforts in order to turn the plastic packaging chain into a circular chain. We would like to share our solutions for sustainable packaging buckets and our circular mission with you. Furthermore, we would like to discuss what your company could do to contribute to a circular plastic packaging chain. At the FachPack and Scanpack we will tell you more about it!
Plastic bottle caps are worth money!
We have donated buckets for the Oogappeltjes Foundation and KNGF Guide Dog Foundation. These buckets are placed in supermarkets, and customers can fill them with their plastic bottle caps. KNGF receives a fee per kilo of caps. We truly enjoy contributing to such a wonderful initiative!

BRCGS is a standard for food safety. The standard describes the hygiene and food safety requirements for food processing companies that supply directly to the retail sector. You can also think of packaging materials for foodstuffs.
The FSSC 22000 Standard has been created through Stichting Certificatie Voedselveiligheid (SCV). As a food-oriented version of the ISO 22000 Standard, this certification programme has been set up as a global guideline in food safety and quality within various industries. This standard is aimed at the entire production chain and as such, it is ideally suited for international harmonisation, partly thanks to the recognition by the GFSI. In addition to its connection with ISO 22000, the FSSC 22000 has many comparisons with the HACCP criteria, making it an attractive variant with the best of both worlds from these programmes. Thanks to the internationally accepted nature of the FSSC and the chain-wide approach within this certification programme, we recognise a strong food safety management system in this standard.
