Mayor of London’s FoodSave Awards
2015 Runner-up Award for Innovation
We were recognized by the Mayor for our commitment to reduce food waste.We found a creative way to reduce our food waste by registering as an animal feed supplier with the FSA and diverting some of our food waste to feed pigs in Cornwall.
Member since 2015
Natoora recently became a member of the Soil Association, one of the most prestigious organic certifying bodies in the UK*. The certification assures the public about the quality of products labeled organic as the Soil Association’s standards are stricter than legal EU requirements and regulations on organic farming, animal welfare, pesticides and fertilizers.
*Please note that only some of Natoora’s products are certified organic. However, we work with many farmers who choose to grow organically despite the fact they are not certified as such.
Approved Supplier since 2012
SALSA (Safe and Local Supplier Approval) is a third party quality and food safety compliance scheme based on EU legislation and regulations. SALSA certification is only granted to suppliers who are able to demonstrate that they are able to produce safe and legal food and are committed to continually meeting the requirements of the SALSA standard.
At Natoora, we conduct routine pesticide analysis and microbiological testing of our products and environment to ensure that we maintain the highest hygiene standards. We also conduct routine shelf life testing (organoleptic and microbiological) of our products to ensure safety and quality.
We are audited every year to make sure we continue to meet their stringent standards.
