Record-beating food safety score in Gist USA

Following a GFSI re-certification audit, Gist Auburn scored 98.99 percent – up from 98.6 percent last year. 

“I’m really pleased to report this very impressive score,” says Charlotte Russell, Head of HR Operations, Gist USA. “It was a much tougher audit process than last year, making the success even better.” 

Opened in 2015 as Gist’s first US site, Auburn provides the first step in establishing a presence in the US contract logistics market by supplying warehouse and delivery services to Starbucks’ Northwest operation. 

Through its benchmarking requirements, the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) creates a common understanding of what constitutes a good food safety system, and has become the most widely-accepted global benchmark for food safety requirements. 

“This is a great achievement by the entire Gist USA team,” adds Charlotte “It’s a clear demonstration of our commitment to achieving high standards for our clients and their customers.”
