The Hazard analysis and critical control points, or HACCP is a system used at all stages of a food chain, from food- productionand preparation processes including packaging, distribution, etc. The HACCP aims to preventfrom biological, chemical and physical hazards in production processes by designs measures to reduce these risks to a safe level. The HACCP is operating on the below principles:

  1. Conduct a hazard analysis
  2. Identify critical control points
  3. Establish critical limits for each critical control point
  4. Establish critical control point monitoring requirements
  5. Establish corrective actions
  6. Establish procedures for ensuring the HACCP system is working as intended
  7. Establish record keeping procedures

Food safety is linked to the presence of food-borne hazards in food at the point of consumption. Since food safety hazards can occur at any stage in the food chain it is essential that adequate control be in place. Therefore, a combined effort of all parties through the food chain is required.

ISO 22000 is a standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization dealing with food safety principles ensuring the safety of our food.

The ISO 22000 involves the following elements:

  • interactive communication
  • system management
  • prerequisite programs
