HACCP – Hazard Analysis Crtical Control Points

It is a requirement under The Food Hygiene Regulations (England) 2006 that all food businesses should have a food safety management system based on the principals of HACCP

The need to have a robust HACCP food safety management system should not be underestimated, a number of businesses have been prosecuted for the lack of such a system.
The format of HACCP plans can be quite varied with some smaller caterers being able to adopt the “Safer Food Better Business”  system with larger operators having to carry out a full risk assessment and introduce a bespoke HACCP plan which is relevant to their particular process and operation.

Regardless of the approach taken HACCP is a systematic way to manage food safety and to prevent foodborne illness and it is designed to control significant food safety hazards which may occur and have an adverse effect when food products are consumed.

Safer Food Better Business
Sessions can be arranged to better understand and use the SFBB system, SFBB is the system produced by The Foods Standards Agency and is aimed at smaller businesses, this sytem uses a common sense approach and is written in clear understanable langauge.
