    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) consists of seven principles and is typically described in 12 successive steps. This guidance document provides information on how to develop a flow diagram (Step 4) and confirm the processing activities against the flow diagram (Step 5) for a food production process that will support the hazard analysis necessary to develop an effective HACCP system in accordance with the Codex Alimentarius General Principles of Food Hygiene (CXC 1-1969). A flow diagram should include all the steps to produce a specific food product, and it should include all inputs, including ingredients and contact materials, water and air, if relevant. The same flow diagram can be used for several products that are manufactured using a similar process. The flow diagram should be sufficiently detailed so that it can be used when conducting the hazard analysis, which is the basis for evaluating the possible occurrence, increase, decrease or introduction of hazards. The processing activities should be confirmed with the flow diagram during all stages and hours of operation, and the flow diagram should be amended where appropriate. This publication is part of the FAO Good Hygiene Practices (GHP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Toolbox for Food Safety series. The toolbox is a central repository of practical guidance and resource materials to strengthen food safety capacities, both public and private, in order to develop and implement food safety management programmes in accordance with the Codex standards. Care was taken to consider the challenges faced by small food business operators and primary producers in low- and middle-income countries, and those with an institutional role, such as government officials, academia and capacity building organizations.

    Product information and consumer awareness – Section 8 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This guidance document provides detailed information on how product labelling and consumer education can help reduce incidences of foodborne disease related to food mislabelling or mishandling. Product information, including allergen information, should be available on all food products to help the next operator in the chain of food businesses or the consumer to handle, prepare, display, store and/or use the product safely and correctly. Food safety along the food business chain is ensured when the consumer has enough information to understand the product and to handle the food safely, as instructed. Educating consumers about the types of information on food product labels allows them to make informed choices and makes them aware of the need to follow product instructions to ensure that they prepare the food safely. This publication is part of the FAO Good Hygiene Practices (GHP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Toolbox for Food Safety series.

    This guidance document provides detailed information on the importance of personal hygiene for those who work directly or indirectly with food. Personnel who do not maintain the appropriate degree of personal cleanliness, who have certain illnesses or conditions or who behave inappropriately, can contaminate food and transmit illness to consumers. Food businesses should establish policies and procedures for personal hygiene, ensure that all personnel are aware of the importance of good personal hygiene, and that they understand and comply with a set of practices designed to ensure food safety. This publication is part of the FAO Good Hygiene Practices (GHP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Toolbox for Food Safety series. The toolbox is a central repository of practical guidance and resource materials to strengthen food safety capacities, both public and private, in order to develop and implement food safety management programmes in accordance with the Codex Alimentarius General Principles of Food Hygiene guidelines (CXC 1-1969).
