What is HACCP  and Why is it important? 


HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) is a Food Safety Management System that identifies, evaluates and controls food safety hazards.  This is stated in Article 5 of Regulations (EC) 852/2004


HACCP is the core of a productive, systematic and effective food safety management system, identifying and controlling food risks to avoid contamination such as microbiological, chemical, physical and allergenic. Having an efficient HACCP plan and Food Safety System enables food businesses to ensure consumers that products are safe and legal. Therefore,  All food businesses must put in place, implement and maintain a food safety management system based on HACCP principles to ensure the food produced from their premises is safe to eat.
