The benefits of SALSA Certification


The SALSA food safety scheme has reached into all supply sectors, including dairies, butchers, bakeries, ice cream makers, jam and relish producers and crisp manufacturers.

The growing demand for locally and regionally sourced products in the food industries has been driven by a wide range of factors. Pressure has come from consumer reaction to the food scandals over the last 30 years and to legal changes, as governments respond to those same pressures. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is the government department in charge of food safety and uses the successful adoption of an external food safety schemes to potentially reduce EHO visits.


The SALSA standard provides a structure on which to develop sound food safety management practises that's integral it raises the bar across the whole food production industry. It ensures that the following parts of the standard are in place and effective!

* Prerequisite Controls –training, supervision, personal hygiene, cleaning, supplier approval, pest control. and process control are all put under the spotlight during audit.

* HACCP and Management Systems – the process provides an independent overview of your critical control points, hazard analysis, risk management, record keeping, internal systems of review, corrective action, traceability, and incident management.
