Every company that manufactures food is required by law to have a working food safety management system.

This workshop on HACCP for producers will provide you with an overview of the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points management system, as well as teach you how to operate legally, safely, and effectively, as you understand what each significant stage in the HACCP implementation process comprises. It will include some practical, paper-based exercises to enable participants to apply their learning to real life scenarios.
