Hi Vassilios, There was some related discussion here recently: ISO 22000 in a mall

Do you have any food safety systems in place at the moment? HACCP?

Simon

Hello Vassilius,

For me it's more useful having a certification 'according to Haccp rules' or sthg like that than implementing 22000 in a restaurant. Perhaps you already have this kind 'certification', but I agree with Simon in one of his previous mails, involvment in 22K represents a lot of money first compared with the return on investment in a restaurant,

Emmanuel.

Base on my previous experiences, whether you are going for the Codex-HACCP or ISO 22000:2005, organization and operation size is irrelevant.

Again, whichever way you wish to go, the catering HACCP Plan will come into effects supported by the appropriate PRPs as guided by CAC-RCP 1-1969 or ISO 22000 Standard requirements including the appropriate verification activities which should be simple to establish and implement.

Clearly, you may have a menu strategy of up to 100 items, the HACCP Plan remains the same. Personally, I would go for ISO 22000 as part of a business investment.

Charles Chew

i agree with charles on iso22000 being a good investment. considering the nature of your business which is a restaurant, you would attract corporations into dining at your own establishment specifically the ones which are ISO certified as well.

I've worked in a hotel before and tendency of the big companies is they make reservations as a group and only have company events at restaurants and hotels that are certified as well for them to be assured of their employee's safety.

Then again, if you already have HACCP, as long as you're regularly reviewing and verifying your controls, you could still assure the safety of the food you are serving.

hope this helps.
