Programme Overview

Remember the Shocking Horse Meat Scandal of 2013?

Are you confident that your Food Business is airtight and free from threat?

Food Fraud, Disgruntled Employees, Site Security, Background Checks, Suppliers are some of the considerations food companies need to take very seriously to ensure the quality of their product and the reputation of their business and their brand.

Since the publication of the PAS 96-Version 3 Standard, Food defence, bio-vigilance and bioterrorism have become a topic of debate and concern for many food/feed operators. PAS 96 (Defending Food and Drink), is the recognised publicly available standard which advises Operators how to construct and implement the necessary controls to assure its customers that their products are safe and secure.

PAS 96 focuses on the threats to a food/feed business from ideologically motivated groups, economically motivated fraud, criminals or individuals with a grudge who may wish to damage an organisation. PAS 96 provides broad guidelines via its 15 step process to operators which should help them assess and reduce the risk to their individual business and to mitigate the consequences of an attack. The risk is different for different businesses, operations and products. It is therefore implied that different risk assessments will result in different action plans proportionate to an individual situation.

The TACCP (Threat Assessment Critical Control Point) and VACCP (Vulnerability) study should be then integrated into the existing Food/Feed Safety management System via the prerequisite programme using the templates provided thus ensuring product safety and integrity.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the programme each learner will be able to:

  • Implement a TACCP & VACCP study into your existing HACCP plan
