SALSA is certification scheme of choice 03 Aug 2011
Safe and Local Supplier Approval scheme (SALSA) has been confirmed as the most relevant food safety standard for micro and small food businesses in the UK.
An independent study, commissioned by SALSA, looked at the different food safety approval options available to fledgling and developing food businesses in the UK. It concluded that as SALSA offered a structured approach to mentoring and an array of support tools before and after certification, the supplier and buyer businesses benefited from sustainable food safety improvements.
IFST oversees the auditing and approval process and manages administration of the scheme.
