HACCP

HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points.

It is a self-auditing system aimed at preventing the risk of chemical migration from packaging into food products  and at safeguarding the health of consumers. It is based on monitoring the various processing phases in which a biological, chemical or physical contamination hazard of a food product is suspected, or, in the case of our organisation, contamination of the thermoformed plastic film intended to come in contact with food.

Applying an HACCP system means monitoring the entire food production and distribution process, including packaging.

Applying an HACCP system allows improving food quality, in particular with regard to healthiness and safety, a concept that goes beyond mere customer satisfaction, but rather aims at protecting public health.

Adopting an HACCP system is a basic requirement for adoption of the BRC standard.

BRC: British Retail Consortium

the BRC programme arises from the need of the international large-scale retail trade to have assured health, safety and quality standards from suppliers of materials intended to come in contact with food. The British Retail Consortium (BRC) then involved the Institute of Packaging (IoP) in drawing up a new technical standard for packaging materials,

which led to the creation of the technical standard BRC: packaging materials for food products. It is aimed at assuring that all suppliers and manufacturers of food packaging materials adopt adequate control systems in their production process so that the materials used are safe and suitable for use in the food industry.

Adaptation to the BRC standard requires:

  • Adoption of an HACCP system
  • Implementation of a documented and effective Quality System
  • Auditing of the production environment, products, processes and personnel

The BRC standard consists of the following sections: 1)  Organisation 2) Hygiene and health self-auditing system 3) Corporate management system 4) Factory hygiene standards 5) Contamination control 6) Personnel hygiene

We have been AA grade certified since 2018.
