About Food Safety Culture

Food Safety is the concept that food will not cause harm to the consumer when it is prepared and eaten according to its intended use (ISO, 2005).

HACCP is a system which identifies, evaluates, and controls hazards which are significant for Food Safety (Codex 2009).

However, HACCP alone does not guarantee food safety. While the use of HACCP continues to increase there are still ‘Catastrophic Failures’ because of a lack of awareness and commitment from the people involved. Many food safety failures are management failures because HACCP is only successful when there is an effective ‘Food Safety Culture’. (Wallace CA 2012)

These are the words of one of the worlds leading experts in Food Safety and it is because of the research undertaken by such food safety experts, which has highlighted the demand for food safety culture, we have created an absolutely unique food safety training culture programme which has now become a major part of what we are offering.
