A excessive normal of hygiene is a prerequisite for secure foodstuff construction, and the root on which HACCP and different protection administration platforms rely. Edited and written by means of a number of the world's major specialists within the box, and drawing at the paintings of the distinguished eu Hygienic Engineering and layout staff (EHEDG), Hygiene in nutrients processing offers an authoritative and entire evaluate of excellent hygiene perform for the meals industry.

Part one seems to be on the regulatory context, with chapters at the overseas context, legislation within the european and america. half appears on the key factor of hygienic layout. After an introductory bankruptcy on assets of infection, there are chapters on plant layout and keep watch over of airborne illness. those are through a series of chapters on hygienic apparatus layout, together with development fabrics, piping structures, designing for cleansing in position and strategies for verifying and certifying hygienic layout. half 3 then reports solid hygiene practices, together with cleansing and disinfection, own hygiene and the administration of overseas our bodies and bug pests.

Drawing on a wealth of overseas adventure and services, Hygiene in nutrients processing is a customary paintings for the meals in making sure secure nutrients production.

26 Hygiene in food processing 1. 2. 3. Avoid contamination of the food in the first place. Avoid the spread of contamination. Eliminate harmful contamination. 4 Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) HACCP is recommended by leading health authorities including the WHO/FAO Codex Alimentarius Commission (‘Codex’) as the basis for hygiene risk management. Specialist texts and advice on HACCP are readily available. It is a seven-stage system which examines the production process and determines the critical points that need to be controlled in order to ensure food safety.

It applies to slaughterhouses (abattoirs), cutting plants and cold stores but not to the cutting and storage of fresh meat ‘performed in retail shops or in premises adjacent to sale points, where the cutting and storage are performed solely for the purpose of supplying the consumer directly on the spot’. This effectively eliminates most independent butchers’ shops from the controls unless they also sell meat to anyone except domestic purchasers and caterers. A feature of the vertical directives is that they require the national competent authority to approve the premises, equipment and activities carried out there before the product can be supplied for human consumption.

This led to a strenuous debate, eventually resolved in 1994 by permitting certain national derogations from the requirements of a replacement directive (94/65/EC) provided that product safety was not compromised. 7 Future trends The EU hygiene directives are in the process of being reviewed, which should lead to improved consistency and controls. 1 Review of the directives There were early calls for the hygiene legislation to be reviewed to eliminate inconsistencies, and the European Parliament called for the vertical controls to be subordinated to the horizontal directive.
