What’s your HACCP plan?
HACCP, or Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point is a management system, designed to address and protect food safety. Having an HACCP system in place is essential for any premises planning to serve food (as we’re confident you don’t want to make your customers ill!); but don’t panic if not sure what you need to do, we’re here to help. Below we’ve provided some handy tips on how you can manage an HACCP plan, but perhaps even more useful, is how our software can work as an HACCP system to take the worry (and paperwork) out of your kitchen.
Shooting for five-star HACCP accreditation
Our best advice is lists, lists and more lists! Having specific HACCP checklists designed to help you keep track of your food safety procedures will mean you’ll be well on your way to HACCP greatness. Here’s some things you’ll want to identify in order to help you build up your HACCP system:
- Understand the ‘why’, so you can make sure your system is practical for your business.
- Think about what the best monitoring procedure would be, and how often you need to check certain things.
- Who will be responsible for monitoring the tasks at hand?
- Provide training on what to do and why it’s important.
For further information and ideas around what sorts of checklists may be useful, have a read of our HACCP checklists blog post.
