HACCP for craft brewers

This course can be run as a tailored option for those who have a number of staff who would benefit from the training or if you would like to register your own interest to attend this course on the next available date please complete the enquiry form

Benefits of attending

One of the main challenges facing microbrewers concerns preparing and updating a HACCP plan. This one day course is aimed specifically at helping microbrewers to prepare or update their HACCP plan. This will fulfill due diligence requirements and satisfy EHOs that risks to the consumer are controlled.

Training Course content

The course is aimed specifically at microbreweries. The course material is based on the relevant qualification specification set by the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) but is customised for microbreweries. Participants are encouraged to bring their own HACCP plan so that it can be updated during the course.

The day will consist of:
• an introduction to the legislation relevant to HACCP and the principles of HACCP
• HACCP prerequisites and an audit of the brewery to review them
• common hazards in brewing, risk assessment and controls
• identifying CCPs, monitoring, critical limits and corrective actions


Learning Outcomes:

Attendance therefore enables microbrewers to:

• Demonstrate that their brewery operates a HACCP system competently, which meets the  legal requirement for a HACCP based procedure
• Improve their operations and produce more reliable and safe product
• Improve their credibility with retailers and other customers so that increased sales may result

At the end of the day there will be a short examination set by the Royal Society for Public Health. This has 20 multiple choice questions and successful candidates will be awarded the RSPH Level 2 Award in Understanding HACCP.
