frequently asked questions
Common questions, answered simply
No. The vast majority of products in our portfolio are pre-formulated liquid products (alcohols and vinegars) that are received principally in bulk formats and undergo further processing (e.g. reduction-blending, filtration) and packaging at the company’s site at Strood, Kent. GFW is an agent to only a handful of pre-packed traded goods (e.g. mustards) that are purchased and sold on in original packaging.
GFW maintains the British Retail Consortium Global Standard for Food Safety, which is currently AA grade.
Only in the case of a limited range of pre-packed traded goods (Mustards). All other products that are processed and packaged by GFW are liquids, which are filled by flowmeter and invoiced in litres (by stipulation of HM Revenue & Customs in the case of alcohols).
Where customers wish to estimate the nett weight (kg) of a given volume of liquid, the following formula can be used:
KGs = Volume (Litres) x Specific Gravity (SG)
e.g. Red wine – SG 0.990 (the mean SG @ 20°C of the product is given on the relevant specification).
20 litres = 20 x 0.990 = approx. 19.8 kg
(or conversely, to calculate Litres from KGs = KGs / Specific Gravity (SG)
