SALSA accreditation once again!

SALSA Approval with flying colours!

Mustard Foods proved that consistency and hard work pays off! Mustard Food’s are flying the SALSA flag high again! We are SALSA certified for another year after completing the audit and receiving a 100% mark. The first quarter of the year at Mustard Foods is always a busy one with kitchen renovations, product innovation, and our annual SALSA Audit but we make sure nothing falls through the cracks.

What is SALSA?

The SALSA standard, which stands for Safe and Local Supplier Approval, was written by experienced food safety experts to reflect both the legal requirements of producers and the enhanced expectations of ‘best practice’ of professional food buyers. Approval certification is only granted to suppliers who can demonstrate to a SALSA auditor that they can produce and supply safe and legal food and are committed to continually meeting the requirements of the SALSA standard.

Mustard Foods has been a member of SALSA for over seven years. Technical Manager Nicole Tayler remarked ‘Our SALSA Accreditation is critical to us. The team has worked hard to achieve an unqualified report with no (material findings) recommendations, and no negative feedback in this year’s audit. Although, there is always room for improvement, and we’ll certainly be stepping up our game over the year ahead.

If it wasn’t for our stellar team, none of this success would have been possible. Well done to the team for their continued hard work and excellence.’

Why is SALSA so important?

With one of our key focus areas for 2022 on the growth of Mustard Foods’ wholesale label product range, our SALSA renewal is another step in the right direction. Our range is now over 40 products and includes soups, main dishes including beef, pork, chicken and vegan options, sauces, marinades and plenty more ordered weekly by over 80 restaurants across the UK.
