Food Safety Management Systems

Food Safety Management Systems 1

A Food Safety Management System is a systematic approach to controlling food safety hazards within a food business in order to ensure that food is safe to eat. All businesses are required by law to put in place, implement and maintain a Food Safety Management System based on the principles of “Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point” (HACCP). The type of system you need will depend on the size and type of business. Large businesses and manufacturers will need very detailed written systems, whereas smaller caterers and retailers may need less detailed systems.

Our “Safe, Legal & Compliant”© Food Safety Management System has been developed to assist businesses in complying with this important legal requirement. Our management system is based upon HACCP principles and the requirements for food safety managements systems outlined in ISO22000 – 2005. After a site visit and audit of your premises, it is adapted specifically for your business needs as no two businesses are the same. Our comprehensive Safe Legal & Compliant © manual includes the following:
  • Food Safety Policy & Procedures
  • HACCP pre requisites
  • Comprehensive HACCP Plans
  • Detailed HACCP Flow diagrams
  • Guidance specific to your business
  • Templates of all necessary records
  • CD containing all necessary record templates
  • Safe, Legal & Compliant © Certificate
In addition to meeting the requirements of Food Safety Law, the additional benefits of having a Food Safety Management System include:
  • It is easier to demonstrate “due diligence” if necessary
  • It involves the staff of the business and in turn will promote a culture of good food safety
  • It increases consumer confidence that your food is safe to eat
  • Failure to properly implement a documented system is very likely to affect the food hygiene rating of your business which may result in reduced trade for your business.
