The Heritage Fine Food Company gains SALSA approval
Following an audit in April 2022 The Heritage Fine Food Company has successfully gained SALSA approval by demonstrating compliance for the following scopes of production:
‘The wholesale, storage and distribution of chilled fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy products, prepared vegetables, cooked meats and raw meat; and other ambient prepacked food and drinks”
The SALSA food standard is independently audited and recognised widely in the industry. Written by experienced food safety experts, SALSA is a robust and effective food safety certification scheme which is appropriate for smaller food producers and processors. Approved suppliers can demonstrate that they operate to standards that are recognised and accepted across the industry and exceed the minimum standards expected by enforcement authorities. SALSA approval 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 the four main trade associations representing the UK Food Chain. The Institute of Food Science and Technology operate the scheme throughout the UK. All of these bodies make up the independently chaired Governance Committee which oversee the SALSA scheme.
