Case History


The Accelerated HACCP Project for Retail Butchers in England


The Department of Health and The Meat & Livestock Commission

Dr Baines managed a major 2-year project to train 7000 retail butchers in HACCP and implement and audit HACCP in their shops prior to the enforcement of butcher shop licensing in November 2000.

The 3.6 Million project was administered by a small team at the Meat & Livestock Commission and represented a World First in terms of scale and the application of HACCP in the retail sector.

 The project involved the training and management of 168 trainers and consultants spread throughout England and liaison with LACORS and Local Authority Environmental Health Departments throughout the Country.

  • The project materials were approved to the Codex World HACCP Standard.

  • The Training Course won the 1999 Food Hygiene Award for the most significant contribution to food safety.

  • The project was completed in April 2000, on time, on target and within budget.
