Safe and Local Supplier Approval (SALSA)
SALSA is a food-safety standard written by experienced food safety experts to reflect both the legal requirements of producers and the enhanced expectations of 'best practice' of professional food buyers. SALSA certification is only granted to suppliers who are able to demonstrate to an auditor that they are able to produce safe and legal food and are committed to continually meeting the requirements of the SALSA standard.
SALSA is a non-profit making joint venture between FDF, NFU, British Hospitality Association and British Retail Consortium. The Institute of Food Science and Technology operate the scheme throughout the UK
