CocoGoodsCo's Factory Meets The Requirements of HACCP Codex Alimentarius

The manufacturing facilities of Luong Quoi Coconut (LQC), which created and owned CocoGoodsCo, have been accessed and certified as meeting the requirements of HACCP Codex Alimentarius. The certificate is valid for 3 years and remains valid subject to satisfactory surveillance audits.


What is HACCP Codex Alimentarius?

In the 1960s, The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) founded the Codex Alimentarius Commission to establish internationally agreed food standards as a reference point for consumers, food manufacturers, processors, and international traders.

HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point. It is a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement, and handling, to manufacturing, distribution, and consumption of the finished product, according to FDA.

The Codex Alimentarius Commission has adopted the HACCP system and guidelines for its application to ensure control of food safety and revised the Code of Practice – General Principles of Food Hygiene (CXC 1-1969) and its HACCP annex in September 2020.

HACCP certification is built around seven principles:

  1. Conduct Hazard Analysis of biological, chemical, or physical food hazards
  2. Determine critical control points
  3. Establish critical control limits, for example, minimum cooking temperature and time
  4. Establish a system to monitor control of Critical Control Points
  5. Establish corrective actions
  6. Establish a procedure for verification to confirm that the HACCP system is working effectively
  7. Establish documentation and record-keeping
