What is HACCP International?
HACCP International is a leading food science organisation specialising in the HACCP food safety methodology and its application within food and related industries.
HACCP International operates a world-renowned product certification scheme for food safe equipment, materials and services. The scheme confirms a product’s suitability for use within food businesses that operate to the world’s highest standards. The certification is of great benefit to companies that supply products and services to the food and catering sector where food-safety compliance is a necessity.
BioCote® is the first and remains the only antimicrobial additive supplier in the world to be HACCP International certified. Our continued commitment to quality control means we are part of a vast network of successful organisations that supply products endorsed by HACCP International, including BioCote® partners, Deb Group and Dyson Airblade.
To achieve this certification, HACCP International’s impartial and experienced food technologists have rigorously assessed and verified the stringent BioCote® quality control procedures. By meeting the ten key criteria stipulated by HACCP International, the antimicrobial technology BioCote® supplies has been formally verified as ‘fit for purpose’ and safe for manufacture into food contact surfaces. Find the ten key components reviewed in this process in HACCP International’s brochure.
BioCote was awarded the HACCP International Certification Mark, following an extensive period of evaluation. The mark is issued by an accredited, renowned and independent 3rd part industry certification body.
The additive specification, process control, quality control, product validation, customer product awareness and customer contractual arrangements in place all serve to ensure the consistency and robustness of the additive, and permit it to meet its stated claim of anti-microbial protection of the products and materials to which it is applied.
