Achieving  the Level 2 HACCP for Food Manufacturing Qualification:

Highfield  Level 2 HACCP for Food Manufacturing qualification delivered by Intrinsic Training  gives a firm understanding in the principles of HACCP.

What is HACCP?

HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points. This is a systematic, preventive approach to food safety and allergenic, chemical, and biological hazards in production processes that can cause the finished product to be unsafe.

Introducing measures as part of HACCP  to reduce these risks to a safe level is an essential requirement of law.  Most importantly all food producing organisations must implement a food-safety management system based on the codex principles of HACCP.
