Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP)
HACCP is a preventative food safety management system in which every step in the manufacture, storage and distribution of our products is analyzed for microbiological, physical and chemical hazards. HACCP is a critical system in our compliance with national or international food safety legislation. It provides a risk management tool that supports other management systems standards across the food industry – such as ISO 22000 Food Safety Management. HACCP outlines good manufacturing processes for all food sectors and is the key to our business domestically and internationally.
So what is HACCP?
It is a risk management tool primarily used to manage food safety risks. A HACCP system allows us to identify hazards before they occur and put in place controls to manage these hazards throughout our supply chain during production. The HACCP scheme meets the requirements of the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) – established by the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations to bring together international food standards, guidelines and codes of practice to ensure fair trade. It can also be used to support the requirements of management standard requirements, such as ISO 22000 Food Safety Management.
Why do we use HACCP?
