HACCP International’s Food Safety Certification for Tork
What is HACCP? HACCP is a common-sense methodology for managing food safety hazards. It is used all over the world by food manufacturers. The methodology underpins all of the ‘world’s best practice’ food safety schemes such as SQF, AIB, BRC and ISO 22000.
How does HACCP International Certification relate to non-food products such as ours? HACCP International high food safety standards don’t just address risks from ingredients and handling processes, they also take into account risks from other sources such as materials and equipment. For these non-food items, food businesses cannot ask their suppliers to have HACCP based food safety programs because they don’t actually make food. In these situations, the food business is obliged to have protocols in place that address any possible risks that could be introduced by items such as equipment and materials. If the food business has this expertise they can do this themselves. When they don’t have the expertise or they want to simplify the process, then they look for 3rd party certification. This confirms to the food business that, the equipment or material is fit for use in food production.. HACCP International’s product certification is designed to meet this precise need.
How does this fit with SCA’s certified products
