Are you starting a food business? Are you overwhelmed with different areas you need to know in terms of food safety? Or you are an existing business in need to simplify or develop your food safety system? Well, look no more as the Safe Catering Pack developed by Food Safety Authority of Ireland is a friendly approach to HACCP. This simple tool helps caterers to develop a system to manage food safety and comply with the food hygiene regulations. It presents options for businesses to choose how they are going to do this.
The pack was developed with help and expertise from the food industry and environmental health officers. It is based on the principles of HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point). HACCP is a process that helps you look at how you handle food and introduce procedures to make sure the food you produce is safe to eat.
The pack was designed for catering businesses. It may also be used by retailers who have a catering function within their business. The pack can be used by businesses that have not yet developed their own food safety management system. In addition, it may also be used by businesses to improve existing systems.
By working through the workbook you will step by step develop your unique food safety management plan. This plan is literally your road map to managing food safety for your business. Once the workbook is complete you can manage food safety on a daily basis by using the food safety record books. The record books allow you to check that food safety hazards are being controlled.
Starting a business can be exhilarating and wildly fulfilling. However, it can be quite complicated, and may challenge you in ways you had not imagined. Knowing the challenges and problems you may encounter in your start-up can help you to prepare for the unexpected, and possibly help avoid common pitfalls. The Safe Catering Pack developed by Food Safety Authority is a simple straightforward guide to help you to develop a system to manage food safety and comply with the food hygiene regulations.
