Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP)
HACCP is a documented system of ensuring that food is always safe to eat, effectively a food risk assessment. It involves identifying food hazards and working out what needs to be done to eliminate them, or to sufficiently control them.

How do we support customers with HACCP?
Our food safety consultant will provide guidance on the principles of the HACCP process and guidance on the different types of documentation that can be used to demonstrate compliance.
Once it has been established the type and range of food your business produces, an appropriate method of documenting the process will be agreed that can then be understood by all those involved in its preparation.
Where ‘Safer Food, Better Business’, a HACCP based food safety management system for smaller businesses is appropriate to use, help and advice will be given on how to use the pack provided by the Food Standards Agency.
We also offer the Introduction to HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) Level 2 e-learning training.
This course starts by covering some of the key terms you will need to understand before moving on to identifying critical control points and analysing some of the key hazards. It’ll show you how to determine control points and how to avoid cross-contamination in the food chain. It will also cover some of the control measures that can be taken along with how to address a problem is a critical limit is breached.
