Combine your inspection with other schemes
Once you are certified with us, you can access a range of additional services to help you save time, keep costs down and avoid duplication. We offer combined inspections, allowing you to attain certification for schemes such as SALSA and British Retail Consortium (BRCGS) alongside your Soil Association certification.
SALSA has been developed specifically 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. They deliver a robust and effective food safety certification scheme that is appropriate for food producers and processors that have under 50 employees.
You can book a combined SALSA and organic audit, which can be undertaken on the same day, and save £100! To express your interest and to find out more, please visit: Dual Audit or call 01295 724248
Due to the impact of COVID-19 restrictions we are temporarily unable to offer dual SALSA audits at this time. We will continue to review the situation.
BRCGS is a leading brand and consumer protection organisation, used by over 29,000 certificated suppliers over 130 countries, with certification issued through a global network of accredited certification bodies. BRCGS' Standards guarantee the standardisation of quality, safety and operational criteria and ensure that manufacturers fulfil their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer. Certification to BRCGS' Standards is now often a fundamental requirement of leading retailers, manufacturers and food service organisations.
We always aim to combine your BRC audit with other scheme inspections, which makes your overall certification process more streamlined. In cases where the audit cannot be combined due to scopes or other logistical reasons, there is no extra cost to your business.
International Organic Standards
To help you reach new and developing markets, we also offer Certification to international organic standards such as those in the USA, Canada, China, Japan and Switzerland. We offer combined inspections with the following schemes:
If you're a current licensee and interested in the above schemes please contact your Certification Officer on 0117 914 2411 or message the team for further information.
Having both audits on the same day makes a lot of sense for a small business like ours. Our Auditor couldn't have been more helpful, guiding us expertly through the whole process. Having SALSA as well as SA certification in place has been a massive positive for our business! We’re getting a lot of interest from retailers, many of whom require a supplier to have both approvals before they will even look at a product.Andrew Robson, Co-Founder and MD of Jollyum - makers of luxury dairy free ice cream
