Food Safety Management

HACCP

It is a legal requirement for most food business to adopt and maintain a food safety management system that is based on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Principles (HACCP).

The layout and format of Food Safety Management systems take many forms and the nature and size of your business will determine which one is suitable for you.

The majority of businesses in Gwynedd such as cafes’ and restaurants will benefit from using the Food Standards Agency’s Safer Food Better Business Pack, whereas manufactures and large caterers would be more suited to adopt a more traditional based HACCP.
