Do you know the difference between Food Safety HACCP 1 & 2?
21 February 2019
What is HACCP?
HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point. A food safety management system based on the principles of HACCP is a systematic approach to identifying and controlling hazards, whether microbiological, chemical or physical, that could pose a threat to the production of safe food. –Source – FASI
It is a legal requirement and is an internationally recognized method of identifying and managing food safety related risk. Simply put, it refers to procedures you must put in place to ensure the food you produce is safe.
Proper implementation of a HACCP program helps reduce the likelihood of customer complaints or a recall by identifying and controlling potential hazards which may come from raw materials, facility processes, and human error.
