HACCP regulations

Since 1994, the European Economic Community has established several fundamental decrees that regulate “personnel hygiene and quality control” in the food industry and apply to all employees in the sector. It is enforced through adequate training and a system of auto-control called “HACCP” (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points).

Meetings with outside producers and suppliers

Meetings with owners, employees and supervisors of companies in the food service sector that work with ingredient production, distribution, control and administration, are valuable for students in order to fully comprehend the restaurant sector.
