Preparing for the unpredictable
A major part of ensuring a safe and reliable food supply chain is a defence against outside, often malicious, threats. Different from HACCP, which controls elements within the food production process, Threat Assessment Critical Control Point (TACCP) deals with unpredictable outside threats to the food supply chain, with the aim of reducing the probability of their occurrence. In view of the importance of TACCP in ensuring the safety of food and drink products we are running a new course on 5 December and will also be publishing guidance in 2014.
TACCP is now recognised as an essential means of ensuring that food remains safe and unadulterated. But threat assessment is not easy, and a detailed understanding of the issues involved is essential in keeping up–to–date with the future of food safety.
