Beverage Standards Association Details
Find out about the BSA, objectives, code of ethics and membership options.
The beverage industry is a network of people, each with a specialist knowledge and expertise, often built up over decades of experience. Through events such as conferences, regional meetings and training courses, the BSA will facilitate access to that expertise and experience.
Depending on your type of business, this could either be directly or indirectly. It could be about finding a new supplier or the opportunity to form strategic alliances that add value to your business. It could simply be about raising your profile as you embark on a career in the beverage industry.
The development of this outstanding training innovation was led by the BSA. This internationally recognised qualification is a must for anyone serious about working in, or selling to, the beverage industry. Fifeteen of the BSA members are ‘Approved’ as City & Guilds Centres and can facilitate this training for you.

The BSA regional meetings are about recognising the challenges and opportunities that are closer to home for its members. For example, the challenges faced in London are different to the ones faced by members in York. The regional meetings create local networking opportunities and allow local committees to form to tackle local challenges.
The range of training and skills courses available through the BSA and its members is staggering. From cupping and barista skills, to customer service and new business appointment generation. BSA members enjoy priveleged rates and first refusal when training places are limited.
The BSA logo reflects what its members see as its core strengths and values. In becoming a member you are also indicating that you too are passionate about quality and uncomprimising when it comes to customer service. The BSA logo is a public way of sending this message.
The members’ area of the BSA website provides access to a wealth of information that may help you in creating a successful business.
The BSA helpline points members in the right direction. No matter what the beverage, equipment, service, HR or health and safety question, the BSA will have a member that either knows the answer or knows a person that can help.
