HACCP is designed for use in all segments of the food industry from growing, harvesting, processing, manufacturing, distributing, and merchandising to preparing food for consumption.  Prerequisite programs such as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) are an essential foundation for the development and implementation of successful HACCP plans.  Food safety systems based on the HACCP principles have been successfully applied in food processing plants, retail food stores, and food service operations.
