HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points)
USDA requires that all schools have in place a food safety plan based on process Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles. Schools that do not meet this mandate are in jeopardy of losing their federal funds.
In North Carolina, we have identified four types of school foodservice operations – commercial kitchens, home-style kitchens, transported/catered meals, and central warehouse. Each type of operation has a specific HACCP Plan that addresses unique features associated with the type of operation.
The first step in establishing a food safety plan is to determine which type of operation you have. If you are having difficulty determining your type of operation, please contact your School Nutrition Consultant to help you.
