Consumers often take food safety for granted. But modern food production is full of complex processes and potential hazards that can lead to food safety issues and requires robust systems to assure the quality of the finished product. Food industry quality assurance ensures the products are safe for consumption and meet the expectations of the customers. Quality assurance also helps in the prevention of foodborne illness and other health risks, which helps to protect the reputation of food companies and the value of their brands.

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP)

HACCP is widely regarded as the industry standard in systematic food safety control. HACCP is a form of food safety and risk assessment planning that identifies potential hazards at different points in the food production process and implements control measures to prevent critical point failure. These processes can be vast and encompass every aspect of food production, and the advice from a qualified HACCP consultant is necessary for the most satisfactory results. Bramwell Partners has experience with HACCP development and implementation and will help implement HACCP in your business.

Food Safety and Quality Assurance vs Quality Control

These are two related, but distinctly different concepts that are critical for the safe production of food and food related products. Quality control is a reactionary process that is concerned with identifying defects in the final products. This is accomplished through inspections and statistical testing. Quality assurance is about the prevention of defects through the use of proactive systems, such as audits, process improvements and HACCP development. Quality control and quality assurance are both essential components of safe food manufacturing.
