What Is SALSA?
SALSA is recognised as the leading food safety certification scheme for the UK’s small food and drink producers. More than simply an audit standard, the Scheme offers a range of membership options, information resources and guidance as well as a strong support structure to take the supplier through to approval in achievable, affordable steps.
SALSA is a joint venture between three of the major trade associations representing the UK food chain:
- The Food and Drink Federation (FDF)
- The National Farmers Union (NFU)
- UK Hospitality (UKH)
The Institute of Food Science & Technology (IFST) moderates the Scheme on behalf of the joint venture owners.
