The HACCP method underlies all food safety programs and is a preventive approach to food safety. This course introduces the concepts of HACCP and focuses on the methodology of building a HACCP plan for food preparation in a retail foodservice environment that is based on a solid foundation of robust prerequisite programs and Good Retail Practices (GRPs).

Understanding the process approach to HACCP empowers you to identify and control food safety hazards in the retail environment, and supports a robust food safety culture. In this course you will gain the knowledge, confidence and skills to develop, implement and maintain a HACCP-based food safety management system in a retail and foodservice establishment.

HACCP for Retail and Foodservice Operations is an examinable program. The examination is available online and is optional for learners who have attended and successfully completed the requirements of the course.

Prerequisite(s): A good working knowledge of prerequisite programs and GRPs is essential.
