What is food safety ?

Food safety is the practice of reducing the risk of foodborne illness by managing and controlling hazards that may cause food to become contaminated, spoiled or otherwise unfit for human consumption. If a business is concerned about food safety, it will likely implement good practices in product design, manufacturing, distribution, storage and handling. Food safety can be achieved through many means including- use of proper manufacturing practices, implementation of HACCP plans, use of proper packaging materials, and employee training.
