Food Safety Plans

Food safety plans help you identify risks, develop strategies to lower those risks, and document the actions that you take on your farm.  They also allow you to develop SOP’s (Standard Operating Procedures) that help guide your day to day activities on the farm.

The information found on this website, including templates for food safety plans, SOPs, and record keeping logs are examples you can use. They are not intended to be used directly. Tailor each to fit your farm operation and practices. These documents are guidance for risk reduction and for educational use only. These documents are not regulatory and are not intended to be used as audit metrics. These documents are subject to change without notice based on the best available science.
