Safety is the first requirement for each class and type of food. Food is safe when it can be consumed within the normal standards of nutrition, without any risk to the health of the consumer. This means that the food will have been produced in accord with specific procedures, codes of good manufacturing practices and self-control systems.
The HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) is a quality system for all companies operating in the agro-food fields (anyone managing food or water). The HACCP was developed in 1971 in America, applied for the first time by NASA and became mandatory in Europe in 1993 and in Italy in 1997. Through constant analysis of quality, safety and risk at critical points, the same firms perform a preliminary analysis of production sites, following the "Guides to good hygiene practices".
