Food safety in the catering industry: everything about HACCP

Do you have a business in the hospitality industry? Then you cannot escape rules regarding food safety. You have probably already come across the term 'HACCP'. But what exactly is HACCP and what does it mean for you as a catering entrepreneur?

Meaning HACCP

HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points).

Complying with HACCP rules: 2 ways

There are 2 ways to comply with the HACCP rules: you can use an approved Hygiene Code of the sector in which you work or you can draw up a HACCP plan yourself.

HACCP certificate not required

The Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) monitors compliance with the rules.

Hygiene code versus Diploma in Social Hygiene

The Hygiene Code is sometimes confused with the Declaration of Knowledge and Understanding Social Hygiene.
