STS –Code of Practice – Food Processors and Suppliers to the Public Sector

SALSA – Safe and Local Supplier Approval


SALSA is a food safety standard and certification scheme developed for buyers and smaller food producers who need to demonstrate that they operate to standards that are recognised and accepted across the industry and exceed the minimum standards expected by enforcement authorities.

The SALSA standard is considered to be more appropriate for smaller food producers and processors than the BRC Global Standard.

STS Code of Practice is a standard required of food processors and suppliers that supply or intend to supply food, ingredients and food related items to the Public Sector.
