HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point. The HACCP system is a food safety management system that aims to proactively identify food safety hazards and come up with steps to reduce or eliminate potential hazards from food production to food consumption. It also determines critical control points (CCP) in the process of food production.

A food hazard refers to anything that could contaminate the food supply and cause adverse health consequences for consumers. It is introduced to the food supply any time through the means of either harvesting, formulation, storage, preparation, packaging and labeling, and/or serving. Food hazards are categorized into four types: biological, chemical, physical, allergenic.
