Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) Course​​

Accredited by the International HACCP Alliance and delivered in collaboration with Ecolab, Inc.

What is the HACCP Course?

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) is a scientific, systematic and preventive approach to identifying, analyzing and controlling significant food safety hazards within a food production system from raw material acquisition through to consumption of a finished product. HACCP is a regulatory requirement for some food industries and has become a condition of doing business for many parts of the food supply chain. Although HACCP is designed to be very general and does not address the specific details for beer or spirit manufacture, many breweries have implemented HACCP in their facilities. This course was developed with the assistance of MBAA members and is intended to help brewers understand and apply HACCP within their operations.

Join colleagues from the brewing industry and learn how to develop and implement a practical HACCP program within a brewery operation.
