Food Safety Programs, HACCP, Food Safety Audit, Food Safety Training


HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) is a preventative management system that was developed by NASA in America in the 1960s. NASA developed HACCP as a means of guaranteeing that the food that was sent into space with the astronauts was safe and would not cause illness.

In Australia, HACCP has been introduced as a model and means of increasing the standards of food hygiene and food quality and to reduce the incidence of food poisoning and food borne illnesses.

The principles of HACCP do not rely on end product testing and unnecessarily comprehensive Good Management Practices. It allows both industry and government to carry out their responsibilities more efficiently and effectively.

HACCP is a logical and systematic approach to the identification, assessment and preventive control of hazards that may arise throughout all the production stages. Once in place, HACCP allows management and production staff to identify and control potential hazards before they arise.

The 3 Key Business Success Benefits of Gold Star HACCP certification

  1. It gives you a marketing edge  over your competitors. Your certification details can be displayed on your promotional materials, creating greater trust in your product.
  2. Getting this certification means you have gone beyond the minimum food regulations, which gives your customers confidence in the quality of your products.
  3. It makes good business sense. In fact, most hospitals, airlines, franchises, wholesalers, distributors and manufacturers won’t purchase from you if you aren’t HACCP certified.

And the best part is we have made it a quick and painless process with our certification success system and ‘all the risk on us’ guarantee.
