Intrinsic Training specialise in the delivery of Highfield’s Level 3 Award in HACCP for Food Manufacturing for who are already working in food manufacturing with knowledge of food hazards and controls.
This course is to provide learners development enabling them to contribute to development and maintenance of HACCP systems enabling them be an integral part of a HACCP (hazard analysis and critical control point) team in food manufacturing and related industries, for example those involved in distribution and storage. 

HACCP is regarded by the Foods Standards Agency as being important to maintaining good practice in the production of safe food

The achievement of a Highfield HACCP qualification will give learners a firm understanding of the principles of HACCP and ensure the cost-effective implementation of a food-safety management system. This will ultimately reduce the risk of food poisoning and food complaints.

The course covers 

HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point, which 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.
HACCP involves implementing measures to reduce these risks to a safe level.
Highlighting the requirement of law that all food producing organisations implement a food-safety management system based on the codex principles of HACCP.
