GMP | Good Manufacturing Practices

What are GMPs?

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) provide basic operating conditions and minimal hygienic requirements for the production of safe food. GMPs are internationally recognized and originate from Codex Alimentarius guidelines. GMPs form the pre-requisites or foundation of a HACCP-based food safety system. You need to implement robust GMP procedures prior to developing and implementing a HACCP plan. By following GMP, you control the risks of introducing food safety hazards into food.  The pre-requisite programs address the manufacturing site and operational practices. They must be documented and updated whenever changes to product or process occur and must be reviewed annually.

Why Implement GMPs in Your Business?

  • To enhance food safety and comply with food safety laws and regulations
  • To prevent foodborne illness and recalls
  • To prevent foodborne injury
  • To prevent food spoilage
  • To standardize your process
  • To foster a food safety culture where employees are knowledgeable and accountable
