Our services

Food safety compliance counseling

At SAIA, we offer our customers updated information on current legal provisions affecting their product, their labeling and advertising, their production and warehousing facilities, their transportation and their control, as well as any legislative changes that may be published. This is a simple way to keep to the strict minimum the reading and the interpretation of the different laws that are constantly passed.

The company: responsible for compliance with current regulations

All companies that handle food or water for consumption, such as the food industry, catering and retailers, need to be up to date with current regulations for their compliance, as they are responsible to the law for any damage caused by their non-compliance. That is why it is important that they get advice in food legislation, either by their own means or with external support.

Sanctions for non-compliance with the legal requirements demanded can range from 5,000 euros to 600 million euros, and even lead to temporary or permanent closure of businesses, depending on the damage caused in health, benefit obtained or intentionality with the non-compliance, as well as seriousness or recidivism in the misfunction.

Our clients choose us because...

We are leaders in understanding trends and legislation:

Working with SAIA means being at the forefront of discussions on new regulations and trends in food safety, as we collaborate with regulatory bodies. Among other things, we coordinate the Guide to Good Hygiene Practices in Restaurants and are authors of the Guide to Prevention within the framework of the Generalitat's Food Waste Prevention Plan.

We offer a highly personalised and adaptive approach:

For over 20 years, we have been advising and training food companies on European, national, regional, and local regulations, catering to companies with very different needs, sizes, and types of activities, covering everything from food safety to waste prevention, facilitating regulatory compliance and operational excellence.

We embrace technology in food safety:

Our consultancy also includes recommending suitable software (with separate licensing costs) to facilitate regulatory compliance, from inventory management and traceability to monitoring critical control parameters and automating records. This exponentially increases food companies' ability to respond to legislative changes and sector challenges.

Legislation applicable to food companies

The "European hygiene package"

The food legislation applicable in Spanish industries and in companies related to food mostly originates from European institutions, and is common to the rest of the European Union countries. The bulk of this legislation is often known as the "hygiene package," a legislative framework consisting of regulations and directives for food production and food safety within the EU, which emphasize both the safety of food products and adequate information for consumers.
