Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Plan for Carbonated Soft Drinks Plant - Abstract
Carbonated soft drinks are amongst the most consumable drinks around the world. The objective of this study was to design Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan for soft drink production plant based on real time conditions in the beverage industry located in Faisalabad, Punjab, Pakistan. The model was developed to ensure the food safety of whole plant using the seven principles of HACCP and other generic models of HACCP using different approaches. Eight-member HACCP team was involved and HACCP chart, verification procedures and record-keeping were initiated. Only one CCP was identified during the production of carbonated soft drink. This research didn’t include the overview of production setup. Based on the results of this study, the authors recommend implementation of HACCP system in all food facilities.
