Have you been told that your HACCP plan is not fit for purpose?
Have you been told to review your HACCP plan?
Do you need an independent review of your HACCP plan?
Do your staff need HACCP training?
If you have answered "YES" to any of these then HACCP support is for you.
EC Directive 852/2004 requires all food business operators, manufacturers, retailers, food service and wholesalers alike to have a documented Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan in place that is current and regularly reviewed.
This is a documented food safety system that looks at your process flow and identifies food safety hazards – such as chemical, physical and microbiological hazards – that may occur at each process step. Any hazards identified have to be controlled by ways of working to ensure they do not become unsafe. Some hazards may be identified as critical control points, which means they are essential to the safety of your product and therefore have to be monitored and corrective action taken if they get out of control.
If you are a small food service or retail operation it might be that Safer Food Better Business (SFBB) from the Food Standards Agency is right for you. As you become more established you will outgrow SFBB, and as a manufacturer or wholesaler, whatever your size, you will need a HACCP plan that has been developed for your process and for your products.
With a Level 4 RIPH HACCP qualification underpinning her HACCP knowledge and lots of experience in reviewing and developing HACCP plans, Catherine is ideally placed to provide you with HACCP support.
Catherine has well recognised templates for the HACCP documentation that are practical to use and clearly follow the process from the writing of the scope, through the development of the process flow, the identification of hazards and their control measures, the use of a Decision Tree to identify CCPs and the CCP summary as well as the generation of an annual review agenda.
During the project Catherine will work closely with you to understand your business, products and process, ensuring your HACCP plan reflects your operation accurately. Catherine will also ensure that you learn about HACCP during the process and can confidently talk about it.
As an approved SALSA HACCP trainer,Catherine has delivered HACCP courses – both regional SALSA organised courses and on-site courses for individual companies.
Thank you to Catherine for our recent HACCP training course. Catherine made the training engaging and very relevant to our specific production process which made all the difference. She had good knowledge and was able to answer all questions put forward. We feel like it has had a practical and positive impact enabling us to better understand and implement our HACCP system. I would recommend Catherine and use her again in the future. Thank you again.
