Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP)
Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) is a systematic preventive approach to food safety that addresses physical, chemical, and biological hazards as a means of prevention, rather than fnished product inspection. HACCP is used in the food industry to identify potential food safety hazards, so that key actions can be taken to reduce or eliminate the risk of the hazards being realized. The system is used at all stages of food production from raw material production, procurement, and handling, to manufacturing, distribution, and consumption of the finished product.
HACCP is an internationally recognized food safety system. This course curriculum will provide online and hands-on training to develop and implement a HACCP system. The course will feature a general review of HACCP and then break-out into groups: meat /poultry HACCP, dairy/juice HACCP, and FDA foods HACCP (e.g. acidified foods, delis, etc.). Course fee includes 2 lunches, course, and online materials.
