A structured approach to food safety using HACCP as a management tool helps companies and organisations demonstrate to stakeholders their commitment to food safety and that stated requirements are being met.

What is HACCP?

Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point, an internationally recognized and recommended approach to food safety that anticipates and prevents hazards associated with food handling and processing.

Why should my organisation implement HACCP?

HACCP is important because it prioritizes and controls potential hazards in food production. By controlling major food risks, such as microbiological, chemical and physical contaminants, the industry can better assure consumers that its products are as safe as good science and technology allows. By reducing food-borne hazards, public health protection is strengthened.

Why should my organisation apply for HACCP certification?

Satisfactory assessment of your management system leads to the award of a certificate of registration and enables clients to use the WCS logo on stationery and marketing material. Certification can be beneficial because of increased pressure by customers and consumers, to demonstrate your commitment to local authorities and other licensing organizations, to gain independent feedback on the effectiveness of your food safety system, to improve your organization’s image.
