HACCP and PCP Consulting Services

Monitoring and detecting food safety-related problems throughout the entire food safety process! We also identify hazards and set up preventive control plans (PCP) to prevent food safety hazards, gain customer confidence, and achieve more rigorous quality control.

What is HACCP?

HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points. It is a process designed to assure food safety, prevent problems, increase food safety standards, ensure you comply with the law, organize your process to produce safe food. A HACCP plan consists of 7 principles, including:

  • Hazard Analysis
  • Identifying Critical Control Points (CCP)
  • Establishing Critical Limits
  • Observing And Tracking Procedures
  • Corrective Actions
  • Verification Protocols
  • Documentation & Record Keeping

These principles may seem obvious but implementing and maintaining them through a food organization is a significant undertaking and, in some cases, an organizational cultural shift (possibly a transformational change) that starts from the management level who need to integrate the HACCP plan into the organization.

What is PCP?

PCP stands for Preventive Control Plan, which is similar in some respects to a HACCP program. But, PCP focuses more on written documentation and traceability aspects to identify and control risk to food and food animals. According to CFIA, a PCP allows you to:

  • identify and describe the biological, chemical and physical hazards associated with food
  • document how you intend to control hazards
  • provide information you can use to develop your plan
  • demonstrate through records that you have implemented in your plan

Preventive Controls must be in place as per Part of the Safe Food For Canadians Regulations (SFCR). To determine if a HACCP or PCP program is right for your organization and how we can implement one of these programs to fit your food-related activities, feel free to contact us.

HACCP & PCP Certification Requirements

HACCP and PPC require organizations (food manufacturers, food transporters, food importers, food storage facilities and food caterers) to be compliant with certain standards and processes in their system for HACCP certification. Since HACCP is a food safety and quality management system, any firm that is working in the industry must apply for HACCP certification. For the successful accreditation of the certificate, they need to complete HACCP audits.
