For the last few months we have been working towards our SALSA (Safe and Local Supplier Approval) membership for food manufacturing.
Happily, this week we received our SALSA food accreditation after passing an audit of our premises and manufacturing processes. We are now full members of SALSA who will audit our membership each year to ensure adherence to their strict SALSA standards.
Sean Horton, Director, comments, “We are very proud to have passed our SALSA audit and to be accepted as a SALSA member. We are a small but growing business and this will give us a definite advantage when presenting our products to larger purchasing groups. We are now establishing ourselves as a quality pie producer to the trade and this accreditation is a reward for everyone’s efforts over the past 2 years.”
SALSA is a nationally recognised food safety certification scheme tailored to small and micro producers. The scheme allows businesses to demonstrate that they operate using a robust and effective food safety standard. The schemes wide acceptance by retailers and food service providers has assisted in SALSA becoming the Food Safety Scheme for producers with big ambitions.
Goddard’s Pies produce savoury pies which are sold to food outlets such as restaurants, hotels and pie and mash shop as well as wholesalers and foodservice companies. All of our pies are handmade using locally sourced ingredients and traditional recipes and techniques.
Sean continues “SALSA has been extremely supportive of our membership and we look forward to working with them for many years to come. We’re an expanding business and this will be a great boost to us during 2012.”
