SALSA & BRC Accreditation

Boost your business and provide customers with the guarantee of good quality.

Accreditations, although not required by law, have phenomenal benefits for food companies. They can encourage new customers, improve business organisation, improve business performance, increase profits, provide due diligence, develop a food safety culture and ensure the quality of your product is never in doubt. We will identify the best standard for your company and help you achieve it.

SALSA (Safe and Local Supplier Approval)

SALSA is a food-safety standard written by experienced food safety experts to reflect both the legal requirements of producers and the enhanced expectations of ‘best practice’ of professional food buyers.

SALSA certification is only granted to suppliers who are able to demonstrate to an auditor that they are able to produce safe and legal food and are committed to continually meeting the requirements of the SALSA standard.

Food Safety Assist can help through every stage of achieving the standard, from development through to implementation, helping you pass your first audit and then maintaining the standard for years afterwards.
