Support from ZERO2FIVE
Trealy Farm Charcuterie has a long history of working with ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre, with the company receiving ongoing support to maintain their SALSA food safety certification.
As part of this process, ZERO2FIVE supports Trealy Farm Charcuterie’s technical manager by carrying out regular internal audits. A ZERO2FIVE technologist checks the company’s documentation and processes against the requirements of SALSA. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the most recent audits have taken place remotely.
Having helped the company prepare for their certification renewal, Trealy Farm Charcuterie’s remote SALSA audit took place in February 2021. The company successfully passed their audit with no non-conformances.
Benefits of the support
Maintaining their SALSA certification is vital in allowing the company to continue to supply their existing customers.
ZERO2FIVE has since commenced another project with Trealy Farm Charcuterie, comprising of further internal audits as well as mentoring the company’s technical manager to validate the effectiveness of their hygiene systems using specialist equipment.
Caroline Davies, technical manager of Trealy Farm Charcuterie said:
“Having SALSA certification has been vital in helping Trealy Farm Charcuterie to grow. ZERO2FIVE’s ongoing support and guidance has been important to allow us to maintain this crucial certification.”
