Demand for locally or regionally sourced products remains a key priority within the food industry.  Many of the UK's major buyers including supermarkets, food service, catering suppliers, local authorities and health trusts see local sourcing as a major objective.

Continued growth in local sourcing initiatives has reinforced SALSA's position as a recognised approval scheme.  Delivering a robust and effective food safety certification scheme which is more appropriate for smaller food producers and processors than the BRC Global Standard.

SALSA has been developed specifically for buyers and smaller food producers who need to demonstrate that they operate to standards that are recognised and accepted across the industry and exceed the minimum standards expected by enforcement authorities.

The SALSA scheme is limited to food producers based in the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Scheme members must be physically involved in food processing, not solely wholesaling or distribution, and cannot operate from domestic premises.
