How It Works

The HACCP Certification Process 

Implementing a HACCP-based food safety system first requires that your company  implement robust GMPs  or pre-requisite programs. Once these programs are documented, trained and implemented, you may develop one or more HACCP plans following the 7 Codex Principle methodology. The number of HACCP plans you will develop and validate are based on the products you manufacture and the complexity of your processes. Food manufacturers that have implemented GMP and HACCP may elect to become HACCP certified. The certification process takes the form of a third-party audit. It is an objective assessment of your food safety system by a respected auditing agency. Contact us to find out more about the food safety certification process. If you already have implemented your GMP procedures, we can help with developing your Codex HACCP plan.

FAQs

What is HACCP?

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) is a preventative and systematic approach to food safety. Its principles are internationally recognised. Under HACCP, preventative controls address biological, chemical and physical hazards associated with food handling and production. HACCP principles can be applied at any point of the food supply chain.

What is the cost and turnover time for Sirocco to prepare a Codex HACCP Plan?

The investment is $1000 on average for one plan and takes seven business days to complete and deliver once we receive all the information needed about the company’s product and process.

What are Good Manufacturing Practices?

Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) provide basic operating conditions, 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 HACCP. When seeking food safety certification, you need to implement strong GMP procedures prior to developing and implementing a HACCP plan.

What is GFSI?

The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) is a non-profit organisation that provides food safety leadership and benchmarks private standards to ensure minimum food safety requirements for the global food industry. The GFSI-benchmarked standards incorporate HACCP principles and best practices in quality and food safety management. Standard requirements are designed to meet business objectives such as regulatory compliance, food safety, food security, product quality and continuous improvement.

What Clients Are Saying

Sirocco Food + Wine Consulting provides you with everything you need [for your SQF audit]. It was easy and quick to implement with these templates. Also Karine Lawrence was so helpful whenever I had a question. I highly recommend the Sirocco SQF Templates.
I would like to thank both of you for organizing & presenting this informative valuable training for Food Industry Professionals within the QA Sector. With the SFCR enactment recently, I have gained valuable insight on the expectations of CFIA along with the opportunities & grants  that are available from the “Post - Farm Food Safety Program through your presentation.
Also, Ketki’s presentation on compliance with the FSMA-“Foreign Supplier Verification” gave me valuable information on the expectations of the “Importer” from the “supplier” with regards to pertinent documents associated to food products being exported to the US.
Thanks once again  for all you support.
We contacted Sirocco Consulting after scoring lower than desired on a SQF 8.0 audit. Karine visited our plant and did a gap assessment. We found her efficient and helpful and used her guidance to get our CARs addressed. Subsequently, we hired Karine to return and train our key personnel on the FSPCA course. Again, we appreciate her knowledge and ability to teach in efficiently. I would recommend Sirocco to anyone needing help building their food safety program. Read More
We just had a gap assessment conducted in preparation for our SQF audit. We developed our written program with the help of Sirocco Food and Wine Consulting. These templates are terrific and easy to implement. The SQF consultant who performed the document review was very impressed with the quality of the procedures and record templates. Knowing that our written documents meet the standard, we feel that we are in a good position to pass our SQF audit and obtain our certification.
As a worldwide importer, in-house re-packager, and direct supplier of over 200 diverse food and dietary supplement ingredients, we faced significant compliance challenges surrounding FSMA, FSVP, and dietary supplement GMP, on top of customer requirements for GFSI compliance.  We interviewed multiple food safety consultants prior to choosing Karine Lawrence at Sirocco, and we couldn’t be happier with our choice— Karine’s FSPCA PCQI Lead Instructor, certified SQF trainer/consultant, auditing and R&D background among other experience was the perfect match for our needs.  She took a practical, entity-based approach in helping us design and implement a comprehensive SQF Edition 8 QMS tailored to effectively and efficiently manage our risks and compliance requirements, while keeping the customer service and operational aspects of our business a priority.  We were impressed with both the form and function of her modern SOP and document sets, as well as all the detail HACCP, risk assessment and other diligence she performed, including working within our cloud-based document management/FSVP software system.  Now we’re receiving “Excellent” audit scores and are delivering better value to our customers than ever.  Sirocco was a great choice!
We worked with Sirocco Food & Wine Consulting to get our FSVP. Karine was great to work with. She was very helpful and always got back to us promptly with any questions we had. I would recommend Sirroco to anyone working on getting their FSVP.
What I appreciated about the course taught by Karine and Sirocco, was that it was organized and well presented. Each day had hands on situations presented that could be worked out by the teams as well as volumes of information at hand. This allowed good participation and dialogue about situations and these discussions could lead to real time questions that we could ask as well and work through as needed. It was a good few days of intense learning and exchange.
I got a better understanding of the Food Safety Plan required for FSMA from this [FDA’s Preventive Controls Human Food] training. Karine has skillfully conducted the training as she provided fact-based examples and links to additional resources to help first-timers build an FSP.  Karine was a wonderful trainer with her knowledge of the subject matter and extensive experience in food safety.
I attended the FSPCA Preventive Controls (Human Food)/PCQI course offered in Vancouver, British Columbia. Course materials were good, the mentoring approach was good, and working with other people in group setting made the course content much clearer. Karine Lawrence, the PCQI instructor did a good job of communicating and... Read More
I recently attended the training session for PCQI (Preventive Controls Qualified Individual) required by the FDA for food exporters and U.S. food processing facilities. Karine Lawrence presented a clear view of the requirements and provided good practical example on how to implement them. She worked her way though the extensive manual in a... Read More
