Suppliers joining SALSA have access, through an exclusive online directory, to approved SALSA Mentors who can help them achieve and maintain the standard. Mentors apply to and are accepted by SALSA through the same process as Auditors.  Criteria governing the scheme ensure that Mentors cannot be Auditors for the same Supplier. 

SALSA also provides a framework within which, local Suppliers could qualify for funding of mentoring through local support organisations.  SALSA has been successful in attracting several funding packages on a local and regional basis from Regional Food Groups, Enterprise Agencies, Sector Schemes, Local Authorities, Business Links etc.
