Course Description:

HACCP is a program to control food/edible safety at every steps of food/edible processing. With the expected approval of edibles in 2019, the next focus would be the development of edible and drinkable cannabis products. This is when quality control measures must be put in place. Health Canada as well as the department of public health may require edible manufacturers to have a HACCP plan. The HACCP plan is a written document identifying food/edible safety hazards and how those hazards are controlled by the manufacturer. This course introduces participants to aspects of physical, chemical and biological food/edible contamination. Topics covered include types and sources of food/edible hazards and factors affecting safety of edible products. Special emphasis will be given to the development, implementation, and maintenance of the HACCP program.
