Basic Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Training

HACCP is the internationally recognized system to identify and manage food safety-related risk. HACCP addresses food safety through the analysis and control of physical, biological and chemical hazards, from raw material production to manufacturing, distribution and consumption. 

Federal food safety regulations for meat and poultry mandate that each manufacturer must rely on a trained individual who has received instruction in the application of HACCP principles. Those trained individuals must perform a periodic reassessment of the ongoing adequacy of the HACCP plan.

This course directly fulfills these regulatory expectations, as well as provides additional practical and technical instruction to assist food manufacturers in producing safe product.

The content of this course is accredited by the International HACCP Alliance.
