That’s One Hell of A Food Safety Plan!
First, we hope the Natural Products Expo West was wonderful for you as it was for us, if you got to attend…so great to see familiar faces and create some new memories! We’ve got more shows slated for this year, so we look forward to the next one. On to the topic for this month…
So should you have a Food Safety Plan? Well, of course, it depends. It most instances, yes, but within that consideration, what should be included? Again, it depends. Not all FSP’s are or should be created equal. Bottomline, the FDA has been taking closer looks lately into the details of food safety plans upon inspection, as we are finding out, so we figured it would be good to recap what those critical aspects are of a food safety plan to be included:
–Hazard Analysis: potential food safety hazards at each stage of the food production process
–Critical Control Points (CCPs): specific points in the production process where the hazard can be controlled or eliminated
–Monitoring Procedures: monitoring the CCPs
–Corrective Actions: corrective actions when a deviation occurs
–Verification Procedures: verify the food safety plan through testing, validation, and documentation
–Record-Keeping: comprehensive records of all food safety activities
–Training: training to all employees on food safety practices and procedures
And one more of the most essential things to have in place, should be a strong food safety culture, which involves everyone in the organization, top down, demonstrating a collective commitment in maintaining food safety standards and continuously improving the food safety plan.
That my friend is how you create one hell of a Food Safety Plan and Program! Can we do it together?
