The last of the HACCP principles requires that you keep records and that you regularly review your food safety procedures, especially if anything changes.
If your HACCP system is in place and working, you can be confident that the food you sell is as safe as it can be. Some food can never be safe to an allergen sufferer - see Allergen page for more...
Food Solutions, in conjunction with the UK authorities, has developed a HACCP Food Safety Checklist. It is a memory aid to stimulate you to ask and answer questions about your food safety procedures and controls.
Our HACCP Food Safety Checklist helps you check your HACCP compliance.
The HACCP Checklist forms part of our Food Hygiene Ratings Pack which is designed to give you the tools to get and keep the highest rating 5 in the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.
We have now included our HACCP Checklist in a standalone 20 page pdf - HACCP explained in plain English to help food businesses understand the HACCP principles and apply them to their business. See HACCP Explained below.
