HACCP form.What is HACCP? Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point, most commonly referred to as HACCP, pronounced "hassip", is a system or a set of procedures which food businesses use to make sure that the food they make or the food they serve is safe.

How does HACCP protect consumers? The HACCP system provides protection for both manufacturers, food service businesses and consumers from unsafe food. If unclean food or food that can make people sick accidentally gets into the market, the HACCP system provides a way for the business to accurately find out where the food came from, what caused it to be unsafe, how it was able to get through their quality control system and the location of all the foods in that same batch.
