SALSA LogoSALSA is the UK’s Food Safety Certification Scheme for small and micro-sized food & drink businesses wishing to gain Approval to supply UK buyers. SALSA Certification provides small producers - and their buyers - with the confidence and assurance that they have passed their initial/annual audit and that all appropriate food safety, legality and quality systems are in place.

The business is audited annually with an onsite inspection that typically lasts a day. Our current operating procedures are reviewed against the SALSA Standard which covers 4 main aspects of production: Prerequisite Controls, HACCP & Management Systems, Documentation and Premises. It is our way of demonstrating full legal, safety and quality compliance to our customers.
