dc.description.abstract NOTE: see the PDF version The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) approach for food safety moves away from testing of final product, and instead emphasizes on raw materials and process control. Control is taken out of the laboratory and in to the processing environment. HACCP provide a structured and systemic approach to the control of identified hazards, which may be biological (microbiological), chemical, physical or combination of the three. A Critical Control Point (CCP) is a raw material, stage, practice or operation within the process where a hazard has been recognized and steps are in place to eliminate, prevent or reduce the possibility of hazard occurring. The application of the HACCP system cover seven principles including identification of potential hazards associated with food production at all stages for processing, manufacture, and distribution until the point of consumption and preventive measures for their control (SLS 1173: 1998). The effectiveness of HACCP depends on the correct application of its principles, combined with other programs (prerequisite programs) such as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), Good Hygiene Practices (GNPs), Standard Operation Practices (SOPs) and Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures (SSOPs). Ice cream, a milk-based product, is a good media for microbial growth due to high nutrient value, almost neutral pH value (pH 6 to 7) and long storage duration (Kanbakan et al., 2004). The quality of ice cream or any food product can be defined against a wide range of criteria, including for example, the chemical, physical, microbiological and nutritional characteristics. Food or dairy manufacturers aim is to ensure the safety and quality of their products which will satisfy the expectations of the consumers. en_US
