What is an HACCP plan?

The HACCP plan is a food safety control plan. It has become one of the most popular ways to ensure that the food you serve is safe for consumption. HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points and is intended to protect food from any hazards or contamination which could lead to illness. These hazards include pathogens like bacteria, parasites, viruses, and chemicals like pesticides and fertilizers.
