HACCP - Your Pathway to Quality Assurance, Minimizing Risks, and
Safeguarding Consumer Trust.


Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) is a science-based approach to food safety, designed to prevent, identify, and manage potential hazards in food production. Originating from NASA’s space program, HACCP has become a globally recognized methodology widely adopted in the food industry. It involves analysing the entire production process, identifying critical control points (CCPs), implementing control measures, and establishing monitoring procedures to ensure ongoing effectiveness.

HACCP’s strength lies in its proactive nature, prioritising hazard prevention throughout food production rather than reacting to issues after they occur. By systematically managing risks at every stage, from raw materials to final products, HACCP ensures the production of safe, high-quality food, enhancing the reputation and trust of manufacturers and suppliers in the marketplace.

Let’s Talk About Your Business


HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) certification is a recognition awarded to businesses in the food industry that have implemented and maintained a HACCP system. The HACCP system is a comprehensive approach to food safety that identifies and analyses potential hazards in the production process, with a focus on prevention and control.


To obtain HACCP certification, a company typically undergoes an assessment by a certification body or a third-party auditor. This evaluation involves a thorough examination of the company’s adherence to HACCP principles, including hazard analysis, determination of critical control points, setting critical limits, implementing monitoring procedures, establishing corrective actions, conducting verification processes, and maintaining proper record-keeping.


Enhanced Food Safety

HACCP focuses on preventing and controlling hazards in the food production process, leading to improved food safety. Certification demonstrates a commitment to producing safe and high-quality food products.

Regulatory Compliance

Many regulatory authorities and food safety standards require businesses in the food industry to implement HACCP. Certification ensures compliance with these regulations and standards, reducing the risk of legal issues and non-compliance penalties.

Consumer Trust and Confidence

Displaying the HACCP certification symbol on products instills confidence in consumers. It signals that the company follows rigorous food safety protocols, contributing to increased trust and brand reputation.

Risk Reduction

By systematically identifying and addressing potential hazards, HACCP helps reduce the risk of foodborne illnesses and product recalls. This can save a company from significant financial losses and damage to its reputation.

Supply Chain Assurance

HACCP certification instills confidence in the safety and quality of products, benefiting not only the immediate business but also fostering trust and resilience throughout the entire supply chain.

Crisis Management Preparedness

Through the establishment of critical control points and corrective actions, HACCP prepares businesses to respond effectively to potential crises or deviations in the food production process, minimising the impact of unforeseen events.


Initiation and Understanding

Begin by understanding the principles of HACCP and securing commitment from top management. Establish a basic understanding of the seven principles of HACCP and ensure leadership support for the implementation.

Team Formation and Expertise

Form a dedicated team with expertise in relevant areas such as production, quality control, and food safety. This team will be responsible for guiding the implementation process.

Hazard Analysis

Identify potential hazards associated with the food production process. Assess the severity and likelihood of each hazard to prioritize control measures effectively.

Critical Control Points (CCPs) and Limits

Determine critical control points in the production process where control measures are crucial. Establish specific criteria and limits (critical limits) for each CCP to ensure effective hazard control.

Monitoring, Corrective Actions, and Verification

Develop procedures to monitor each CCP according to established critical limits. Define corrective actions to be taken if monitoring indicates a CCP is not under control. Regularly verify and validate the HACCP plan to ensure ongoing effectiveness.

Certification and Continuous Improvement

Engage a certification body or third-party auditor to assess HACCP system compliance. Based on the audit findings, obtain HACCP certification. Foster a culture of continuous improvement by learning from experiences and periodically reassessing and refining the HACCP system.

HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) is a systematic approach to food safety that identifies, evaluates, and controls hazards throughout the production process, ensuring safe food for consumers.

The seven principles of HACCP involve hazard analysis, determination of critical control points, establishing critical limits, monitoring, corrective actions, verification, and record-keeping, collectively ensuring food safety.

While not mandatory for all, HACCP certification is often required by regulatory authorities and is crucial for any food business aiming to demonstrate a commitment to food safety and quality.

The process involves forming a HACCP team, conducting a hazard analysis, implementing control measures, and undergoing a third-party audit. The duration varies but generally takes a few months.

Recertification is typically required annually, and ongoing obligations include regular internal audits, monitoring, and updating the HACCP plan to address changes in processes or regulations.

Training is vital for successful HACCP implementation. Staff can receive HACCP training through workshops, online courses, or by hiring certified trainers.

Yes, HACCP is applicable to all food products, regardless of their type or stage in production, ensuring a systematic approach to hazard control.

While both focus on food safety, HACCP is specific to hazards in the production process, while ISO 22000 is a broader food safety management system covering the entire food chain
