Restaurant management can rest easily about food safety standards by adhering to the principles and practices of the Hazardous Analysis of Critical Control Points (HACCP) program, a management system that addresses food safety. HACCP address the control of biological, chemical and physical hazards — from raw material production, procurement and handling to the preparation and service of meals.
It is imperative in any restaurant that every chef, cook and associate is trained in HACCP practices and closely adheres to its food-handling guidelines Along with that adherence, participating restaurants are audited on a monthly basis during an unannounced visit that focuses on validation of HACCP procedures being actively in place, and maintenance of HACCP principles being documented on an ongoing basis.
Most food service providers can use assistance in this area, which we can provide by conducting audits and assessments. Our audits measure the 10 primary compliance categories most critical to the restaurant industry as set forth by HACCP:
• Purchasing and receiving
• Preparation and production
• Service and distribution
• Premises and equipment
• Cleaning and sanitizing
• Guest areas
• Staff standards
• Staff facilities
• Quality assurance and program management
After assessing a location, we provide our clients with reports including recommendations for corrective action and the training possibly needed to attain and maintain HACCP standards. We can help you take the necessary steps so your guests and employees alike can enjoy a clean and safe environment.
