Hazard Analysis and Risk-based Preventive Controls (HARPC)


Quality in Food Safety helps companies develop HARPC preventive plans that define and prepare them for comprehensive FSMA systems.  We train and lead the change that provides a solid basis for growing, packing, distributing, incoming, in-process and shipping controls.  View some of our training sessions at or attend our upcoming session noted on the right:

HARPC requires both food safety and quality system training.  While our introductory HARPC course will give you an idea of the type of training you need, we provide on-site and online training in the following support courses:

New Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirements for  Food Safety brings the process control expertise you need to develop early stage planning.  We provide modern food safety and quality systems planning, tools and training to establish the preventive planning, Hazard Analysis, Monitoring, Corrective Action, Verification and Recall Prevention program required by new FSMA proposed rules.

With extensive experience in international operations, QIFS personnel can help prepare your own processing facilities into compliance with FSMA needs.

We work internationally and guarantee our work.  Let us help you achieve the preventive process controls to help ease import and qualification problems.

Audience

Food shippers, processors, retail and restaurant purchasing groups, ingredient buyers and sellers, food safety managers and team members

Guide to Food Safety and Quality During Transportation: Controls, Standards and Practices is a new book by John M Ryan.


The book, published by Elsevier Press, includes FDA and USDA guidance information, standards and certification, and food safety and quality planning procedures to establish a foundation for transportation system prevention, implementation, standardisation, measurement and improvement.

“Guide to Food Safety and Quality During Transportation provides a sound foundation for the improvement of the transportation sector responsible for the movement of food. While food safety agencies have been focused on producer, processor, retail, and restaurant food safety, the industry that moves the food has been largely overlooked. Ensuring trucks and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected, proper maintenance of refrigeration temperatures during transport, and avoiding paperwork delays are all areas of concern. Lack of government oversight has resulted in multiple, non-standardized approaches to food safety that are inspection-dependent,” the publisher says.


“This book focuses specifically on the food movers normally overlooked by today’s food safety auditors, compliance schemes, government agencies, quality control personnel, and transportation executives. It outlines delivery control solutions and provides basic standards designed to protect the transportation industry, as well as addressing problems associated with food transportation and practical solutions that are focused on container sanitation and traceability food safety and quality needs.”


The book it written for those involved in ensuring the safe transport of food commodities, including supply chain management, food safety management and quality management personnel.


If you transport or cause food to be transported, standardizing and controlling transportation processes in order to prevent food adulteration is critical. Your company must have a consistent ability to meet customer and legal food safety compliance requirements.  Containers, bins, trays, trailers, tankers, rail cars, reefers, ground and air pallets and other food carrying containers for cleanliness, temperature control, traceability and management record keeping in order to meet U.S. and international food transportation requirements.

It is clear that food container tracking, sanitation, temperature and humidity control and record keeping are becoming supply chain issues requiring increased attention across all company locations. 

Introduce your logistics professionals to newly evolving standards and to help them to develop a customized system that will meet today’s logistics needs, satisfy your customer’s food safety requirements and ready your food transportation processes for upcoming legal requirements.
