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?

Prices start at $1500 and it takes our team seven business days to complete and deliver the HACCP plan 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

“We contacted Sirocco Food + Wine Consulting” to prepare various evaluation protocols for the sensory profiling of our fair trade cocoa beans and chocolate. Finished products were also assessed using the Tastel web sensory software. Karine developed an aroma wheel for our products which we now use to support Marketing and Sales. Our next step is to train an internal sensory panel so that we are able to track the sensory quality of our cocoa beans and chocolate.”

I have had the pleasure of working with Karine for over a year now. She helped our company pass our first SQF audit Ed. 8.1 with a score of 94. For our recertification audit, which was on SQF Ed. 9.0, Karine visited our site and performed a gap assessment. She was able to identify a lot of areas for improvement and with her help our company passed the audit and achieved a score of 96. Karine is really knowledgeable on SQF. She is easy to work with and extremely helpful.

“We have been working with Karine Lawrence for about 8 months as we work to achieve our HACCP certification. She has been such a great support for us; providing training for our HACCP team and being present to answer our questions. She has so much knowledge on food safety requirements and has been able to provide us with resources to ensure that we have strong programs in place. Early in the process she conducted a gap assessment of our programs and the facility, which helped us identify the areas that we had to improve on. We feel confident that we will successfully reach our food safety goals. Thank you for all your guidance throughout this process.”

“This is to tell everyone that we have been dealing with Karine Lawrence for 2 years in doing our HACCP Plan & PCP importer plan for our wholesale company and it has been a pleasure dealing with her. She is hardworking, organized, passionate, intelligent and truly knowledgeable and knows how to accommodate our personal needs. Without her knowledge, guidance and expertise, we could not have finished our PCP plan/HACCP plan in time. Because of her, we are now fully compliant and very safe in running our wholesale food business. We are blessed to know Karine and without her, we would not be where we are today in our business.”

“Karine was a wonderful instructor. She was thorough and ensured we understood content before moving on rather than trying to rush through things to follow the course schedule. She was engaging and asked a lot of questions, appreciating all of our different backgrounds and ideas.”

“ The instructor (Karine Lawrence) was extremely knowledgeable and the class was enjoyable” “This course (SQF 9 System Implementation taught by Karine Lawrence) definitely increased my knowledge and understanding of SQF.”
We would like to express how grateful we are to have found Sirocco Consulting. We were a week away from our first ever SQF desk audit when we decided to purchase the SQF Templates Bundle from Sirocco. We had about 60% of our procedures in place but were able to rely on Sirocco’s template to cover the rest. The SOPs and Forms provided by Sirocco were detailed and covered all requirements of the SQF code.  We did not have any non-conformities on procedures that we implemented using the templates provided by Sirocco. After the desk audit we continued to work with Karine. A month and a half later we passed our first SQF site audit with only 6 minor non-conformities. This would not have been possible without Sirocco Consulting. Thank you from the team at Blue Ocean.
I would like to take this opportunity to express how very satisfied I was to receive and work with the Sirocco SQF bundle.  What a time saver! The templates are very easy to use and adjust to make your own. They saved me countless hours of work, guiding me through the necessary steps and gave my program a cohesive professional look. One can become overwhelmed with the volumes of paperwork that is needed for SQF and HACCP.  The Sirocco SQF bundle definitely lightened that load and combined with Karine's expertise, I couldn't be happier. Highly recommended.
I am very happy with the service Sirocco provided us. Karine and Sean are amazing food scientists/experts!  They are super knowledgeable and respond in such a timely manner when I need the support urgently with my seafood business. I cannot thank them enough for their help. Highly recommended!

Karine, […] I just wanted to thank you for the work you did on our PCP [plan]. We were audited by CFIA in November and did very well.

We were in a situation that required that we get an SQF Certification in a very short period of time. Sirocco Consulting provided us with the templates we needed and talked us through the process. No doubt without them we could not have achieved receiving our certification in the allotted time. Karine was our consultant and she made the process understandable and much less daunting than it would have been otherwise. I highly recommend Sirocco Consulting to any company that needs a third-party audit. It was one of the best investments we made in our trek to become third-party certified. We are counting on significant return on investment having achieved this milestone in our growth. Thanks Sirocco!
