SALSA and Organic auditing

Duncan Perry of Outsource Solution Ltd has been approved by the Institute of Food Science and Technology as one of the first 7 approved auditors for the newly launched SALSA scheme. The Small and Local Supplier Approval (SALSA) scheme is designed to verify supplier status of small producers through a 3rd party audit. It is expected that this will fulfil the requirements of retailers, wholesalers and caterers for their supplier approval process and their own Food Quality Management Systems. Approval under this scheme will be a valuable tool to grow small businesses into new markets and be a good validation of their systems.

Both auditing and mentoring services are provided. Please contact us for more details.

Duncan has also just been registered as an approved Organic Processor auditor by DEFRA and can undertake complex processing audits for approval under the SOPA organic standard.
