The quality of your kebab is our no.1 priority

We manufacture kebab meat to SALSA standards

We achieved the SALSA standard, so that you can be assured that our quality & processes have been independently assessed and verified

 


The SALSA standard was written by experienced food safety experts to reflect both the legal requirements of producers and the enhanced expectations of ‘best practice’ of professional food buyers.  Approval certification is only granted to suppliers who are able to demonstrate to a SALSA auditor that they are able to produce safe and legal food and are committed to continually meeting the requirements of the SALSA standard, which include:

 

Products
Control of raw materials / Cross Contamination Control / Traceability
Supply chain management / Stock control / Shelf life / Labeling control

Kebab meat with consistent flavour, texture and quality

 

Our customers demand a consistent quality kebab and rightly so. Wholesalers need happy retailers and kebab retailers need to be confident that their kebab meat will consistently look the same, taste the same, cook in the same way and have as little waste as possible.  We are passionate about delivering on these needs and to continually improve our business, which is we are committed to maintaining SALSA standards and why our ingredients are sourced from trusted suppliers, selected for their commitment to maintaining excellent standards.

Trusted Ingredients

The ingredients that we use in our kebabs are sourced from trusted suppliers whose quality assurances have been heavily scrutinized and who maintain excellent standards at all times. We require all of our suppliers to be regularly, independently inspected and assessed to ensure that our products are made from the very best ingredients.

Kebab College

 

Cooking Kebab Meat on a rotisserie grill is a fairly straight forward job, but it doesn’t come without its problems.  Over the years we have encountered a number of common problems that can and do arise. These problems which include: crumbling kebabs, kebabs that cut too thinly, blistering kebabs etc…are mostly easily dealt with by following some basic steps. In order to help our customers to avoid and rectify these problems, we have created a series of ‘Kebab College’ videos that outline the common problems and show how to put them right

 

Kebab Care Guide

 

Looking after your kebab meat in the correct way can really help to cut down on waste and maximise profits.  To help with this, we have produced a kebab care guide that covers all aspects of handling your kebab from unwrapping to cooking, cutting, heating and storing.

Wholesale Distributor

London

I have ordered my kebab meat from Istanbul Meats for almost 30 years now and have always received a high quality product. They were recommended to me by a family member who knew Ali when he owned his own shop. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone, as long as they're not based within 5 miles of my shop!

Kebab Shop owner

Newcastle upon Tyne

Catering for a very specific, but large market, I needed a kebab meat product that was manufactured to my own tried and tested recipe. Istanbul meats are the only kebab meat manufacturer that I would use for my products, they really care about what they do and consistently deliver exactly what I need.
