FIB Biosecurity risk management in the food chain - a framework


Food businesses will have an enhanced ability to manage their biosecurity risk which will help to ensure a reliable supply of safe food and a more resilient agricultural sector. Through the management of this risk there will be a reduction in the potential occurrence of tained food, and greater security in the ability of businesses to maintain market share as a result.

Objective Summary

A framework will be developed to enable a methodical assessment of biosecurity risk within a food chain which can be integrated into a HACCP risk management construct. By understanding biosecurity risks along the food supply chain businesses will be better able to integrate the necessary controls into their HACCP planning therefore improving the security of the food they produce. This will be achieved through the review of previous work/research and consultation with various food industry and government skakeholders to identify the Critical Control Points (CCPs) for biosecurity risk along the food chain.
