Food safety is at the core of HACCP. HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points and is defined by the FDA as “a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product.”
