Food Control Plan Explained - Whangarei
Wednesday, 25 July 2012, 1b. Auckland
The new Food Act will require nearly all commercial food businesses to have Food Control Plans. When the new Food Act is introduced, food sectors will be brought into the new system over a five year period. Those operators who opt in now will have the chance to keep their Food Control Plan in place until the end of that five year period.
With a Food Control Plan in place (registered as a Food Safety Programme) an operator will be exempt from the Food Hygiene Regulations. A council Environmental Health Officer (or representative) will verify (check) that the business is following its Food Control Plan and that it is appropriate for that business. The verifier does this by reviewing records, talking to management and staff, and visually assessing business activities.
This 3 hour workshop will cover each of the main components of this Food Control Plan and explain how to implement it in a food business. Even if you've already started a Plan, bring it along as this workshop will help you implement it in to your business.Course cancelled - please check our calendar for future training dates in your area
