HACCP or Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points, is a preventive system for the control of health threatening biological, chemical, and physical food hazards during food wash hands processing. This is a comprehensive, three-day workshop, designed for those individuals responsible for implementing and managing a HACCP system in a food manufacturing facility. Participants who pass a final test will receive a certificate of completion.

Interactive sessions show how to implement programs such as Good Manufacturing Practices, Sanitation, and Pest Control.

Participants will learn the five preliminary tasks, the seven key HACCP principles, and how to build a HACCP plan with product description, flowcharts, hazard analysis, and a critical control point matrix.PracticalFS-HACCP-Nov14-Pressquality
