(HACCP) Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point

Course Overview

HACCP certifications aim to systematically identify any factors that might present a potential health risk to consumers, allowing you to avoid hygienic hazards or lower their risk to acceptable levels. The certification is based on the Codex Alimentarius, an international code of conduct for the industry. The certification is relevant to all fields within the food industry, including suppliers such as detergent manufacturers, packaging producers, machine-building firms or chemical plants. Not only does the HACCP mark minimize potential hazards, it signals to your customers that your company is vested in the highest food-safety standards.
