Copas receives SALSA certification
Published:  08 August, 2008

Turkey producer Copas Traditional Turkeys has received SALSA (Safe & Local Supplier Approval) certification for its purpose-built seasonal facilities.

Jodie Cavaye, Copas sales & marketing manager said: "Although over 50 years experience in our field counts for a lot, Christmas and Poultry are two high-risk arenas, so we are delighted to have received SALSA certification, which adds to our already excellent reputation for welfare standards, product quality and food standards."

SALSA is a joint venture between the four main trade associations representing the UK Food chain - The British Retail Consortium, The British Hospitality Association, The Food & Drink Federation and The National Farmers Union. In order to comply, independent audits took place inspecting standards of product safety, legality and quality and the provision of demonstrable due diligence.
