We have high standards, because you have high standards.
Raise Bakery is proud as punch that we’ve been awarded the Safe and Local Supplier Approval (“SALSA”) accreditation. It is a significant stamp of approval and rewards all our hard work, it also enables us to supply large retail and restaurant chains.
SALSA is recognised as the leading food safety certification scheme for the UK’s small food and drink producers. It sets a high standard for food manufacturers, which allows us to engage with hundreds of buyers. Additionally, Raise Bakery has the necessary stamp of approval to manufacture products on behalf of other companies.
The certification is a food-safety standard written by experienced food safety experts to reflect both the legal requirements of producers and the enhanced expectations of ‘best practice’ for professional food buyers.
SALSA is a non-profit making joint venture between the four main trade associations representing the UK Food Chain.
The Institute of Food Science and Technology operate the scheme throughout the UK but all four of these bodies make up the independently chaired Governance Committee which oversee the SALSA scheme.
Accreditation is only granted to suppliers who are able to demonstrate to an auditor that they are able to produce safe and legal food and are committed to continually meeting the requirements of the SALSA standard.
