Food control plans

A food control plan (FCP) sets out what steps a business making or selling higher-risk foods needs to take to make safe food. You use it to identify risks and show how they're being managed. It means customers will know your food is safe – and it can help you create a successful food business.

Find out about pre-evaluated plans that are ready to be used in your business.
