Food Safety & Hygiene Audit


Food Safety & Hygiene Audit

Food safety is used as a scientific method/discipline describing handling, preparation, and storage of food in ways that prevent food-borne illness.

The principles of food safety aim to prevent food from becoming contaminated and causing food poisoning.

Audits are a crucial component of maintaining food safety standards and certification, by providing transparency and assurance that standards are being maintained. This transparency increases the collaborative capacity of stakeholders across the supply chain, and enhances safety, efficiency and continual improvement within individual organizations

Pillars of Food Safety and Hygiene

  • Cleaning and Sanitizing

  • Personal Hygiene

  • Food Storage

  • Temperature Control

  • Food Handling

Nowadays, the increased interest of consumers on food safety and quality matters, triggered mainly by recent food scandals, has enabled the public and private food sectors to develop a variety of food safety and quality standards.

The term ‘food safety’ encompasses all the important practices that businesses must follow to ensure food is fit for consumption. ‘Food hygiene’ is one of these important practices, which means it’s a subcategory of ‘food safety’.
