Microbiological specifications

Microbiological specifications

The safety of food is a top priority for food manufacturers. The reliance on 'end product testing' for microbiological safety is now being supplemented by microbiological specifications, guidelines and standards. There are pre-set microbiological criteria that are used to verify that HACCP and Good Practices are working. Experts at Campden BRI can help you to appreciate the differences between standards, guidelines and specifications, and can guide you on current legal requirements.

The safety of food cannot be controlled by microbiological criteria alone, but they are useful for verification of HACCP and due diligence purposes. We can provide wide ranging advice and guidancein this area.
