haccp food safety system

The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) system was initially developed by NASA and members of the food industry to insure that astronauts would be safe from food-borne pathogens & hazards. Today, we have come to realize the importance of evaluating how we handle ALL foods, from the farm to the table.

CCF&B has created an innovative approach to the HACCP processes that are so essential for identifying potential hazards in the “flow of food”. For each of your existing recipes, we address every ingredient & procedural step to identify & document all Critical Control Points, Critical Limits & Corrective Actions, creating a “HACCP Friendly” version.
