SALSA Certification

The SALSA certification has been developed specifically for small and local food manufacturers looking to demonstrate that they operate to a recognised standard for food safety.

A new SALSA accreditation standard has also recently become available for those who are involved in the storage, brokerage and distribution of food products.

SALSA stands for Safe and Local Supplier Approval, and can help your business to supply products to regional and national buyers.

What Are The Benefits Of SALSA Accreditation?

If you are looking to grow your business, the majority of manufacturing businesses are asked to attain a third-party food safety certification as a supplier requirement.

SALSA certification provides businesses with the confidence to approach buyers and start new conversations for new businesses. In passing the audit for this standard, a business demonstrates that the level of food safety within their business is of a high standard.
