Every Supplier approved by SALSA receives an annual audit against the SALSA Standard.  The audit is appropriate and proportionate to the size of the business and, unlike standards under EN45011 accreditation, Auditors are able to provide advice and guidance to the supplier during an audit - just as those Auditors working directly for the Buyer normally do.

SALSA Auditors are professionals with proven food industry experience in the fields of operation they will be auditing.  To verify this, all Auditors must have been accepted by the IFST Register of Professional Food Auditors and Mentors (RPFAM).

Affordability for small businesses is a key feature of the SALSA scheme. We therefore match our members to local auditors with the appropriate sector qualifications and experience.
