All our Yorkshire Crisps and Yorkshire Popcorn produced at our Sheffield base now have accreditation from SALSA (Safe and Local Supplier Approval).
SALSA is a food safety standard for small and micro businesses based in the UK and Channel Islands and demonstrates that we are able to produce safe and legal food and are committed to continually meeting the requirements of the SALSA standard. It is the leading food safety certification for the UK’s small food and drink producers and is a joint venture between four major UK food trade associations: The British Retail Consortium (BRC), The British Hospitality Association (BHA), The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) and The National Farmers Union (NFU).
The aim of SALSA is to provide, first and foremost, safe food, via implementing best practices and controls that produce food that is consistently safe. It also aims to provide affordable and constructive support for us, as one of its members, to help our businesses grow, along with practical advice and guidance, working with them as a team.
It is important for us as a producer to be able to demonstrate to buyers that we operate to exceed the minimum recognised and accepted industry standards. We hope the accreditation will open up opportunities to secure new contracts and grow our business further.
