Ensure Compliance with Revolutionary Technology
Managing food safety in a global food business requires strict adherence to industry guidelines like HACCP, BRC, IFS, and the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). These guidelines demand consistent reporting practices across all locations, making the food safety audit process a critical challenge. Digital solutions are designed to automate tasks, ensure compliance and, streamline operations, protect customers while leveraging operational efficiency.
The Crucial Role of Consistency in Food Safety Reporting
International food safety standards and audits are designed to safeguard customer health. However, global food businesses encounter unique challenges when managing food safety across various countries and their criteria. International HACCP guidelines provide a detailed plan for ensuring food safety, but accurate data recording is paramount for success.
Manual recording methods can be error-prone, leading to financial losses due to spoiled food and an increased risk of foodborne illnesses. Implementing a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution offers a unified approach to food safety management.
Unveiling HACCP International Guidelines
Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) guidelines are globally recognized as the primary standard for food safety management. They empower food businesses to ensure food safety and quality by preventing and controlling various physical, chemical, and biological hazards from food production to consumption. HACCP comprises seven fundamental principles:
- Hazard Analysis: Identify and address food safety hazards.
- Critical Control Points (CCPs): Identify control points to manage hazards.
- Establishing Critical Limits: Set upper and lower limits for control measures.
- Monitoring CCPs: Regularly verify CCPs to ensure they stay within specified limits.
- Corrective Actions: Develop procedures to address deviations from critical limits.
- Verification Procedures: Incorporate activities to validate hazard analysis and operational compliance.
- Record-Keeping and Documentation: Maintain comprehensive records for auditing and compliance.
