About the HACCP School

Food safety and consumer protection is a priority for all Member States as well as all accession countries like Western Balkan countries.

People have the right to expect the food they eat to be safe and suitable for consumption. Safety is not guaranteed only by “safe” product manufacture, the total chain has to be taken in account. Work according to internationally recognised safety standard HACCP is obligatory to all players in EU agro food chain (farmers, processors, trade, transport) and to all importers of food into EU.

Western Balkan potential candidates for EU membership face several challenges regarding food product safety and consumer protection issues. In majority of countries work according to the HACCP standard is obligatory by national laws already but not working in praxis at all.
So there is a need for national HACCP school/excellence and resource centers which will train HACCP experts and certified their knowledge.

Within the project Vocational excellence ensuring food product safety, consumer protection and competitiveness in Western Balkans national HACCP school/excellence and resource centers in three partnering Western Balkan countries will be established. On the national level directory of qualified consultants with “proof of professionalism” will be published enabling all interested companies and stakeholder to find a “good” expert for their needs. National HACCP schools will function also as “HACCP Excellence and resource Centers” organizing and hosting discussion groups to share experiences and experts to examine specific problems.

The target groups are:

  1. food and agriculture specialists (food technologists, veterinarians, agronomists, head cooks and chefs in big and small kitchens),
  2. health, veterinary and sanitary inspectors,
  3. mangers (and owners) of large and small food processing,
  4. agriculture and tourism industries (including managers of gastronomy units, food shops and groceries)

Location of the HACCP Schools: Bosnia  & Herzegovina, Republic of Macedonia and Serbia
