HACCP Set-Up & HACCP Validation

Comprehensive HACCP Program Write-Up: ASI can come into your facility and work side-by-side with you to write up your comprehensive HACCP Program. You know your facility and product lines, ASI knows HACCP. Validate your Current HACCP Plan: ASI will determine if the current HACCP Program is adequately designed to control unidentified hazards in order to produce a safe product. Verify Your Written HACCP Plan: Is your HACCP Plan working? A verified written HACCP Program is the foundation for any one of the GFSI Benchmarked Standards audits. ASI’s HACCP experts can be the outside eyes to determine if your HACCP Plan is working. Present a Principles of HACCP Seminar: ASI can come onsite to your facility and teach your staff the Principles of HACCP or the Principles of HACCP/Codex. During this seminar we will also teach the step-by-step procedures of writing a HACCP Program and can even work with you to write your customized HACCP Program.
