We've all heard the stories about the HACCP manual that sits on a shelf gathering dust until the day a customer's food safety auditor or a government inspector comes to visit the food processing plant. The inspector asks for the company's Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points plan and the HACCP manager quickly dusts it off before handing it over for review.

"It still happens," says Robert Savage senior vice president of HACCP Consulting Group (HCG), a globally recognized food safety consulting and training provider.

"The company thinks that since they had somebody trained and they developed a HACCP plan way back when [that] they're good forever," he explains. "But, I would say that we've come a long way in understanding and applying HACCP effectively and the days of the manual attracting dust are mostly past us."

In #meatingplace magazine's August 2021 article, "Have Manual, Will Travel," we spoke to Bob about the evolution of HACCP in U.S. and overseas meat processing plants over the years and learned his top tips for ensuring that the company's HACCP plan is — and remains — dust-free. https://meatm.ag/bobsavage. #meatindustry #foodsafety #haccp

Time to start updating our allergen program! On April 14, the US House of Representatives passed the “Food Allergen Safety Treatment Education and Research ACT”. It designates sesame as a major food allergen. The Bill is now headed to the President to be signed. Once signed, the bill is effective Jan 1, 2023 and any food with sesame in interstate commerce must be labeled accordingly. Need help? Let us know at [email protected].

Worried about Lack of Supplies?

The coronavirus is having a profound & varied impact on different parts of the food supply chain, but most of the disruption is happening due to hoarding by nervous consumers, according to processors and other industry observers.Politicians, grocers and processors are all insisting that there is an adequate overall supply of food, and that any shortages or disruptions are due to the normal flow of the supply chain being inadequate to cope with the sudden surge in demand.
