Why do I need a Food Safety Plan?

By law, most food businesses in Canada are required to have a Food Safety Plan as part of their Food Safety Program. Not only is it a legal requirement, but it is also good business sense. Having a Food Safety Program in place, which includes a Food Safety Plan, is a good way for food businesses to keep food safety hazards from occurring in the business. This keeps customers and staff safe, and ensures that you are operating a top-notch food establishment.
