Based in Bedfordshire, the leading gourmet merchandise company achieved full certification after undergoing a rigorous audit by SALSA, who reviewed all safety, production and legal processes in accordance with the strict SALSA standard for food producers.
The Sweet People has been steadily growing year on year since 1998, continually setting standards previously unattained in the industry. As gourmet confectionery suppliers, they’ve been keen to demonstrate their exceptional commitment to quality and compliance at every stage, setting their sights on achieving accreditation and approval from the toughest auditors.
“Being awarded the SALSA certification is a landmark event for the Sweet People and we’re delighted to be an approved food supplier. It has given the business a wonderful boost and great start to 2017,” explained Mandy Hastie, Managing Director at The Sweet People.
The Sweet People expanded its range of sweets and packaging in 2016 with a new focus on sustainability, community and natural ingredients. They sourced their gourmet chocolate from Fairly Traded communities to ensure the plantation workers and their communities benefitted directly. They also introduced the award-winning Goody Good Stuff gummies that are gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, vegan, halal and kosher, flavoured with natural fruit juices and without artificial colours.
“We want to push boundaries and find new ways of elevating the confectionery merchandise market by continually raising our standards in every way,” added Mandy. “Going through the SALSA audit gave us real focus and drive to strive for even better in 2017.”
The Sweet People now have over 600 promotional confectionery products and a wide range of packaging and full branding options. They offer free and unlimited branded samples across the entire range with fast turnaround times, quick delivery and no minimum orders.
