Part 1 General issues: Regulatory context in the EU; HACCP in the US: Regulation and implementation. Part 2 HACCP on the farm and in primary processing: HACCP and farm production; HACCP in primary processing: red meat; HACCP in primary processing: Poultry.

The recent outbreaks of E.coli and BSE have ensured that the issue of meat safety has never had such a high profile. Meanwhile HACCP has become the preferred tool for the management of microbiological safety. Against a background of consumer and regulatory pressure, the effective implementation of HACCP systems is critical. Written by leading experts in the field, HACCP in the meat industry provides an authoritative guide to making HACCP systems work effectively.

This book examines the HACCP in the meat industry across the supply chain, from rearing through to primary and secondary processing.
