In doing so it will depend on the integrity of a robust food control plan or national programme. Here, consistency is everything and the smallest oversight can have the biggest consequences.
A food control plan or national programme can relate to the production, manufacture, preparation, packaging, storage, handling, transport or distribution of food. It identifies and controls any hazards that may potentially cause harm to the consumer.
Reassuring these consumers requires a number of monitoring and assessment processes be in place. With costly food recalls regularly hitting the headlines, reputations rise and fall with such reassurance or lack thereof.
