Benefits of Implementing a Food Safety Plan

In recent years, a Food Safety Plan based on HACCP concepts is internationally acknowledged as a tool for enhancing food safety.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) recognized HACCP as one of the systems to ensure food safety.

Benefits of a Food Safety Plan based on HACCsP includes:-

  • Traditional food management systems are reactive to food hazards. However, a Food Safety Plan applies a preventive approach to minimize food hazards.
  • A Food Safety Plan acknowledges the responsibilities of the industry for food safety.
  • A Food Safety Plan minimizes the limitations of traditional food management systems such as end-product testing and inspection.
  • A Food Safety Plan improves consumers's confidence in the product.
  • A Food Safety Plan minimize the possibility of food poisoning.
  • In a long run, a Food Safety Plan lowers production cost on raw material wastage and food recall.
