Companies in the food chain are obliged to ensure that they provide healthy and safe foods that do not pose any risks to consumers and must comply with the Cypriot and European legislation.
Each company must have the necessary infrastructure, prepare a HACCP study and implement a Food Hygiene and Safety Management System.
Food Hygiene and Safety Management Systems provide a framework for the systematic identification, assessment and management of risks which are related to food safety, in order to comply with legal requirements, to prevent the occurrence of risks and to continuously improve.
|ISO 22000 is an internationally applicable standard, which specifies the requirements for developing and implementing an effective Food Safety Management System.
|HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) or otherwise Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, is a preventive method that aims to ensure the safety and hygiene of food and beverage at all stages of the production and distribution process.
|FSSC 22000 was created by the non-profit organization FSSC (Food Safety System Certification), a combination of the requirements of ISO 22000 and ISO / TS22002-1 (= Prerequisite Programs on Food Safety for Food Manufacturers), which replaced the PAS 220 and is recognized by the largest food retail chains worldwide.
|BRC Food Safety Standard was developed by the British Retail Consortium (BRC) and is addressed in many food companies wishing to export to supermarket chains in Great Britain.
|IFS Food was developed by the Association of German and French Business Retail and is addressed to companies exporting to supermarket chains in these countries.
