Curd & Cure Gains SALSA Certification

Artisan food & drink wholesaler Curd & Cure has been awarded Safe & Local Supplier Approval (SALSA) for the production facility within their new custom-built premises in Staplehurst, Kent. The company sources cheese, meats & deli items which are cut & packed to order in their production facility before being distributed to farm shops & delis nationwide in Curd & Cure’s branded retail packs. 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. Stuart Grant, Managing Director of Curd & Cure, commented “We are very proud to have achieved SALSA certification, especially within such a short time of moving into our new premises. Coupled with our recent rebrand, we are looking forward to the new supply opportunities that SALSA opens up, whilst continuing to give customers complete piece of mind when it comes to the standard of food safety here at Curd & Cure”. In order to gain approval, it must be demonstrated that the company is operating to standards that are recognised and accepted across the industry and exceed the minimum standards expected by enforcement authorities. Bonnie Joplin, SALSA Scheme Development Manager, added “The UK is home to the finest food and drink, much of which comes from smaller, local and artisan food and drink businesses. Curd & Cure are great champions of this, and we are thrilled to be a part of their ongoing success story. SALSA certification takes commitment to the highest standards of food safety management and we congratulate Curd & Curd on their achievement.” Curd & Cure lists over 1400 product lines from local, national and international producers including cheeses, meats, deli items and specially selected food & drink products. The company supplies to farm shops & delis throughout the South East and across the country. A current brochure may be downloaded at www.curdandcure.co.uk.
