HACCP Food Safety, Essential for the Australian Food and Beverage Industry
Hazard Control and Critical Control Points (HACCP) is a systematic approach to food safety regulations that is used to identify, assess, and control hazards associated with food production. It is a science-based system that can be used by any business that produces, handles, or serves food.
HACCP is particularly important for the Australian food and beverage industry, as it helps ensure that the food produced is safe to eat. The Australian food and beverage industry is worth billions of dollars, and it is essential that the food that is produced is of the highest possible quality.
HACCP can help food and beverage businesses to:
- Reduce the risk of food poisoning
- Improve the quality of their products
- Protect their brand reputation
- Comply with food safety regulations
How HACCP Works
HACCP is based on seven principles:
- Conduct a hazard analysis.
- Identify the critical control points (CCPs).
- Establish critical limits for each CCP.
- Establish monitoring procedures for each CCP.
- Establish corrective actions to be taken when a critical limit is exceeded.
- Establish a verification procedure to confirm that the HCCP system is working effectively.
- Establish record-keeping procedures.

- Microbiological hazards, such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites
- Chemical hazards, such as pesticides, herbicides, and cleaning chemicals
