Traders Upper East Hotel, Beijing has been awarded the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point System (HACCP) certification – one of the most sought-after food safety system accreditations in the hospitality and food industries. The hotel also holds the distinction of being one of the hotels in China to become HACCP certified.
The HACCP focuses on preventing hazards that could cause food-borne illnesses by applying science-based controls, from raw material to finished product. Its methodology is based on seven key principles: hazard analysis, critical control points identification, establishing critical limits, monitoring procedures, corrective actions, verification procedures, and record-keeping and documentation.
Through the HACCP programme, the food and beverage team members work closely to understand, assess and enhance operations and food safety practices. The main guidelines, which are the key to a successful food safety system, consist of food purchasing, transportation, storage, processing and service. All staff strictly follow the Shangri-La group’s food safety management policies and undergo intensive training on HACCP principles to ensure customer satisfaction.
The hotel’s dedicated food hygienist oversees implementation of the HACCP through education, training, execution and maintenance of the programme, in addition to the existing Shangri-La Food Safety Management System, which was designed according to HACCP principles.
