Secure your food operation’s regulatory compliance with a solid HACCP Plan
Prioritizing food safety will ensure your business survives and thrives. We write and implement HACCP Plans that satisfy inspectors and surpass customer expectations.
Making Food Safety Make Sense
You’ve been told your facility needs a HACCP plan by a regulatory body but don’t quite know where to start. A Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points Plan — HACCP for short — is a scientifically valid (and internationally recognized) plan that assures the food you handle is consistently safe, with the goal of protecting the consumer. If you’re required to have one, you need an experienced food safety consultant.
A HACCP plan sets you up for success.
Protect your customers
The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2011 ensured every link in the food chain would have the highest safety measures in place. A HACCP Plan lets your customers, and consumers, know you’re doing your part to deliver safe, wholesome food products.
Protect your business
From managing the risks associated with food safety issues to ensuring you’re compliant and ready for inspections, a properly written and implemented HACCP Plan gives you peace of mind. We also provide training for your entire team.
Protect your brand
Food safety issues like contamination or recalls make headlines, quickly eroding consumer trust in your products. And the financial fallout can be devastating. A HACCP Plan promotes positive brand awareness and increases consumer confidence.
Global Food Safety Consultants built an easy to use HACCP Plan that was approved immediately by the Department of Health. They did a great job educating us on food safety and check in regularly to make sure we are successful.

A Comprehensive Approach to Your HACCP Plan
You simply can’t afford to take chances when it comes to documentation as important as your HACCP Plan. Attempting to do it yourself or hiring an inexperienced consultant are not risks worth taking. We’ll work with you and/or your inspector until it gets approved. It’s our promise to you.
During our initial 60-90 minute assessment, we discuss your product, process and facility.
Our HACCP consultants write a custom HACCP plan that meets established criteria.
Depending on the complexity of your plan, we deliver an electronic document within 2-6 weeks.
We train everyone including managers, food handlers and operations staff on key tasks and processes.
When regulations change or your business evolves, we’ll be ready to update your HACCP Plan.
The 7 Key Principles of a HACCP Plan
Global Food Safety Consultants ensures your HACCP Plan follows the 7 key principles.
Conduct a Hazard Analysis
We identify and evaluate any biological, chemical and/or physical hazards associated with your product which can be present in ingredients, equipment, storage and other conditions.
Identify Critical Control Points
Each significant hazard identified in the Hazard Analysis above will need a control to reduce (to an acceptable level), prevent, or eliminate the risk.
Establish Critical Limits
A critical limit is a scientifically specific value or value range, such as a temperature or the amount of time needed for the Critical Control Point to effectively manage food risks.
Monitor Critical Control Points
Implement a process to ensure every single food item you produce is within control and documented. We accomplish this by developing monitoring and verification procedures.
Establish Corrective Actions
Corrective Actions should assist in determining the root cause of the issue and address what happens if something goes wrong including outcomes and documentation.
Set up Verification Procedures
This ensures monitoring procedures are scientifically validated and working as intended, such as calibrating thermometers or observing an operator performing the procedures correctly, etc.
Both supporting documents and operational records are required to comply with federal regulations. Keeping (and storing) accurate daily records mitigates risk.
