Implementing a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) food safety management system is a central priority for today’s food industry, as it is critical to complying with the standards of regulatory authorities, governments and consumers.

Flowcrete UK has produced a whitepaper entitled What is a HACCP Food Safety Management System and How Does it Relate to Flooring?to help F&B businesses learn about this preventive risk assessment tool. As the whitepaper explains, being HACCP compliant is vital to fulfilling the increasingly strict requirements of food industry regulators. Many nations will require produce to have been produced according to the same or similar principles, this means that failing to meet the HACCP benchmark can stop businesses from trading domestically and internationally.

The HACCP process involves analysing hazards and putting in place appropriate controls to reduce contamination. Getting the floor area right is central to this, as failing to do so could put the facility at risk from unwanted bacteria build-up which could infiltrate and spoil produce onsite.

In the whitepaper, readers will be able to find out what flooring characteristics and certifications to look out for to ensure that floors within production, processing and storage areas live up to the HACCP standard.
