what is haccp


What is HACCP?
  • Proven method used to ensure the safety of the foods we serve
  • Originally developed for NASA space flights
  • Systematic approach that ensures food safety by looking at all processes as food “flows” through our kitchens
    • Ordering
    • Receiving
    • Storage
    • Preparation and Holding
    • Service
why use haccp


Why use HACCP?
  • It works!—Proven Industry Standard
  • It is mandated—SchoolFood must have procedures in place to demonstrate how we maintain and verify food safety
    • USDA Requirement
    • New York State Education Dept Requirement
    • New York City Department of Health
who is responsible for haccp


Who is Responsible for HACCP?
  • Every SchoolFood employee
  • Each employee has an individual and team role
    • Correct issues immediately and inform coworkers
  • Seek guidance from the Manager and Cook-in-Charge
when is haccp used


When is HACCP Used?
  • At all times in our operations

HACCP follows the flow of food through our kitchens

      • Receiving
      • Storage
      • Preparation
      • Service
      • Clean-up
  • When developing new recipes and procedures
    • HACCP principles guide development and implementation
how is haccp learned


How is HACCP learned?
  • Training
    • Classroom Training
    • Training Centers
  • Application
    • During 120-day Probation period
    • HACCP Inspection reviews
  • Feedback
    • Ask questions
big things to remember

Key Points

Big Things to Remember

Top three causes of food borne illness –

we control the risk

  • Food Temperatures
    • Calibrate thermometers daily
    • Check food temperatures at preparation, holding, and serving
  • Cross Contamination
    • Defrost food properly
    • Keep stations clean
    • Use sanitizing solution between tasks
  • Poor Personal Hygiene
    • Wash Hands frequently
    • Use gloves
food temperatures

Key Points

Food Temperatures

Keep food out of the Danger Zone at every stage of Production

Protein Items Stored at proper temperatures

Protein Items Cooked to Internal Temperature of 165°F

Protein Items Held at Internal Temperature above 140°F

Protein Items Served at Internal Temperature above 140°F

Protein Items Cooledto Internal Temperature below 40°F within two hours

seven steps of haccp

HACCP Principles

Seven Steps of HACCP
  • Assess the Hazards

Review Operations

  • Identify Critical Control Points

Where hazards can be prevented, eliminated, or reduced

  • Set Standards

Guidelines for all operations

  • Monitor Critical Control Points

Verify proper procedures are being followed

  • Take Corrective Action

Correct issues immediately

  • Keep Records

Temperature and Production Records

  • Verify the System is Working

HACCP Review Team to verify

the schoolfood haccp program

HACCP Principles

The SchoolFood HACCP Program
  • SchoolFood integrates HACCP procedures into our daily practices
    • HACCP is “built into” our operations
  • Training Manuals provide direction and additional information
  • Be ready to implement new procedures
    • Based on real-world experience
    • Based on HACCP reviews
    • Based on new items and recipes
critical control points

HACCP Principles

Critical Control Points
  • Points where there is a potential danger to food
    • Develop and implement a procedure to minimize the risk
  • CCP: Hot Food must be held at above 140°F
  • Procedure:
    • Monitor food temperatures during holding time
    • Thermometers calibrated for accurate readings
it starts with you

Serving Safe Food

It Starts With You
  • Understanding how important Food Safety is
  • Applying HACCP principles at work (and home)
  • Helping coworkers understand
  • Asking Questions
  • Following HACCP procedures
  • Wearing a clean uniform
  • Taking action
  • Working smart
  • Keeping customers safe
types of contaminants

Basic Biology

Types of Contaminants
  • Bacteria: Causes most cases of food borne illness
  • Viruses: Focus on personal hygiene
  • Parasites: Need a host to survive
  • Fungi: spoilage microorganism

Some contaminants “show” their danger


Sour Milk

Some contaminants “hide” their danger


Hepatitis A

microbes 101

Basic Biology

Microbes 101

Food Borne Illness may result from


Pathogens grow in the intestines of someone who has eaten contaminated food: symptoms may take time to appear


Caused by eating food containing poisonous toxins that are not destroyed by cooking

fat tom

Basic Biology


Bacteria require the following to grow:

  • Food—Energy to multiply
  • Acidity—Proper pH level
  • Temperature—proper range for growth
  • Time—to multiply
  • Oxygen—Survival*
  • Moisture

How do we control or limit the food bacteria need to grow?

bacterial growth time

Basic Biology

Bacterial Growth—Time
  • How Bacteria Grow over time
    • Multiplication
  • Bacteria will grow as long as conditions are right
bacterial growth conditions

Basic Biology

Bacterial Growth—Conditions
  • How Bacteria grow in good conditions
  • Growth Chart
    • Lag Phase: stable and preparing for growth
    • Log Phase: rapid growth
    • Stationary Phase: rate of death and growth are the same
    • Death Phase: More bacteria dying than growing




Number of Bacteria
