Food Control Plan - The What, Which and How
Your Food control Plan (FCP) is a blueprint for your business that lays out how you keep your food safe.
It is everything you need to have under the Food Act 2014 in one place.
You use your FCP to identify risks and to show how they are being managed. It is a way of informing customers that your food is safe and it can help you create a successful food business.
Which plan is right for you?
What kind of plan you need to have and how you register it depends on the type of food you make and what level of risk the production of that food poses.
High Risk Food
Many food manufacturers will be deemed high risk and will need to develop a Custom Food Control Plan. This will be registered with the Ministry of Primary Industries.

Medium - High Risk Food
Most food service businesses (restaurants, cafes, bakeries, butchers etc) will need a Food Control Plan. This will be registered with your local council.
Medium Risk Food
Some manufacturers such as those making flour or fruit drinks may be deemed as a medium risk. These businesses are required to register as a National Programme 3 with their local council.
Medium - Low Risk Food
There are a number of food service or manufacturing businesses that pose a much lower risk to the public. These businesses are required to register with their local council under the National Programme 2.
Low Risk Food
Businesses that sell manufacturer packaged foods are considered the lowest risk. These businesses are required to register under the National Programme 1 with their local council.

Using this service allowed us to be well prepared and ensured we put our best foot forward on the day. The auditors were very impressed with the folders and systems Grant had implemented with us. We passed the inspection with no changes required. I would highly recommend this service."
