What does HACCP stand for? HACCP refers to Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point. It is a management system addressing food safety through chemical, biological and physical hazard analysis and control, from raw material production, manufacturing and distribution to finished product consumption.
It is a systematic approach to identify, evaluate and control food safety hazards. Food hazards are of various types, including microbiological, chemical and physical hazards as well as allergens.
To be able to successfully address the issues and impacts of hazards, it is important that they are correctly identified, evaluated and classified. Thus, hazard identification broadly refers to identification and evaluation, which require special expertise.
Certification of an organisation or industry by HACCP adds a huge mark of credibility and safety with regard to the food products produced, thus increasing organisational appeal to customers and retailers.
