Join us and @SALSAfoods live on Twitter this Wednesday from 2pm and learn all about SALSA’s food safety certification scheme, designed especially for smaller producers.
With the deadline for entering Britain’s Next Top Supplier drawing near, we’ve teamed up with SALSA to show you the additional benefits of gaining food safety accreditation for your business.
What we’ll be chatting about:
- Why Ocado and other supermarkets want food safety accreditation
- What is SALSA?
- How much does SALSA cost?
- How long is the accreditation process?
- What support and advice is available to people who apply?
- Brands who have SALSA accreditation
We’ll also be joined by some of our SALSA-certified suppliers listed on ocado.com:
