HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points. It is a risk inventory for food products. The system is based on 7 basic principles described in the World Health Organization's (WHO) Codex Alimentarius. For food to be safe to eat, among other things, hygiene throughout production is important. As is the control of raw materials and the logistical process. The HACCP system helps with this because it identifies hazards at each link in the chain, and describes how to control those hazards.
