Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP)

Taken from: https://www.food.gov.uk/business-guidance/hazard-analysis-and-critical-control-point-haccp

“HACCP is a way of managing food safety hazards. Food safety management procedures should be based on HACCP principles. HACCP involves:

  • Looking closely at what you do in your business, what could go wrong and what risks there are to food safety
  • Identifying any critical control points the areas a business needs to focus on to ensure those risks are removed or reduced to safe levels
  • Making sure that your procedures are being followed and are working
  • Keeping records to show your procedures are working

It is important to have food safety management procedures that are appropriate for your business.”
