An introduction to HACCP

HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) is a risk-based approach that identifies, evaluates and controls hazards significant for food and feed safety. Follow these seven principles to meet marketplace demands and expectations for safe food and feed.

The seven principles of HACCP

Keep premises, equipment and transportation vehicles clean

Throughout the dispatch and transportation process, it is important that the premises, equipment and transportation vehicles remain as clean as possible. Grain residues in vehicles can be a source of stored product insects and mites. Therefore, take care to remove deposits of grain in the vehicle, as soon as possible after transportation.
