SALSA (Safe and Local Supplier Approval)
Boost your business and provide customers with the guarantee of good quality through SALSA accreditation.
As your business grows your larger customers are likely to demand you attain a food safety accreditation like SALSA, to provide confidence that the products you supply are safe, legal and of consistent quality. This can be a condition of trade.
What is SALSA?
SALSA (Safe and Local Supplier Approval) 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. It is aimed at micro and small food and drink manufacturers and offers a more appropriate standard than BRC Global Food Standard. 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 standard.
