Achieving Gold HACCP certification
Fancy Lebanese Bakery is a family operated Halifax bakery established in 1962. They make pitas and other specialty baked breads for restaurants and major retail stores. They wanted assistance in developing and implementing a HACCP based food safety plan in preparation for a 3rd party audit with a major retailer.
Perennia quality and food safety specialist Elaine Grant began working with Fancy Lebanese Bakery in the fall of 2014. The bakery opted for a gap assessment to the vendor specific requirements to help identify any gaps they had in their current process and program. From there, a full program was developed and implemented in conjunction with the owners.
Since their successful audit in late 2014 where they achieved a gold HACCP certification, They opted to have annual pre-audit assistance to ensure their program is up-to-date and meets current audit requirements in order for them to maintain access to the large consumer market offered by this leading retailer.
