Nith Valley Eggs pride ourselves on the love and care we provide our hens on our woodland farm. With 30 acres of woodland to roam as they please, our happy hens wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.
That is why it is with great pleasure that we announce our recent accreditation by SALSA food group. We are now the ONLY free range egg producer to hold this accreditation in the whole of Scotland!
SALSA Food are an organisation managed by the four main trade agencies for food in the UK. Gaining accreditation and recognition by SALSA is a fantastic step forward for Nith Valley Eggs. Receiving the support from the main food trading associations emphasises all the hard work that has been put into ensuring our customers get the highest quality eggs possible.
SALSA provide certification for small businesses acknowledging their due diligence in terms of legal requirements for food producers and also provide food safety assurance for customers.
The need for organisations such as SALSA has grown in conjunction with the increased demand for locally sourced suppliers. Certification from SALSA demonstrates that smaller businesses are meeting the same demands on a more appropriate scale than more commercial companies.
Here at Nith Valley we have always known the eggcellent quality of our free range eggs. As free range egg producers in Dumfries and Galloway, it is a great achievement to receive a nationally recognised accreditation such as SALSA. We hope this will further promote the importance of free range egg producers over commercially raised, caged hens.
