Ensuring compliance with food safety standards in an increasingly complex regulatory environment can be challenging for dairy processors. To meet current state and national safety standards, dairy product manufacturers use plant-wide Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) plans. These plans provide individualized standards for good manufacturing practices (GMP) based on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) requirements.
Comprehensive HACCP plans also lay out flexible, organized procedures to enhance product safety and reduce product recalls from the marketplace. An effective HACCP plan can also help dairy manufacturers increase efficiency and lower costs throughout their operations.
