What is HACCP?
- A food safety program that focuses on managing or eliminating potential hazards/risks that could lead to food borne illness (FBI).
- It differs from other programs for sanitation and personal hygiene because the emphasis is on FBI risk elimination and foods flow through a school foodservice facility.
- It works to prevent food safety problems before they occur by identifying and eliminating or controlling possible hazards that can contaminate food as it moves through the foodservice facility.
