SALSA & TESTING LABORATORY

TESTED & TRUE

Honey is the third-most adulterated product in the world. The British Honey Company are leading the way of scientific research into the provenance and traceability in Honey. Working with Oxford and Reading Universities they have initiated a programme looking at the DNA makeup and the Isotope readings of various honeys. The software programme they use has been written by Michael Williams, founder of The British Honey Company and Alex Maurice, Director of IT & Tracebility to track the provenance of honey from ‘hive to table’. All their honey is tested for fake & foreign honeys, as well as colourings, flavourings and other nasties to guarantee the safety of their honey in the food and drinks chain.
Alice Meng, BioChemist 
 
“We take the provenance and traceability of our honey very seriously, we use the latest techniques and testing procedures to monitor and assure the ingredients used in our products are of the highest quality. We also participate in the application of SALSA food standards, and are committed to making all our food and drinks safe and legal”.

WE ARE PROUD TO BE FULLY SALSA CERTIFIED 

About SALSA

SALSA 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' of professional food buyers.

SALSA certification 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.

SALSA is a non-profit making joint venture between the four main trade associations representing the UK Food Chain featured on the right. The Institute of Food Science and Technology operate the scheme throughout the UK. All of these bodies make up the independently chaired Governance Committee which oversee the SALSA scheme.

SALSA's Purpose: To provide affordable food safety assurance certification and support for small and micro businesses in the United Kingdom.
