OVERVIEW & OBJECTIVES

HACCP is a management tool that examines business processes in a focused way to determine the best way to meet food-safety standards.

It is a preventative approach to food safety that examines every stage of the production process, identifies essential procedures and ensures process standards remain constant. Simply put, it asks “What might go wrong and how do I make sure it doesn’t?”
