Food risk profiles

Risk profiles for specific food/hazard combinations are used across the food industry to help assess food safety risks.

Risk profiles provide contextual and background information about the potential risk when a food and hazard are combined. The profiles assist:

  • risk managers to make decisions about further action
  • regulators to develop requirements for risk-based food control programmes
  • approved auditors when they assess the safety of processes within a food business.
  • industry associations, businesses and food safety consultants to understand the hazards they need to control in their, or their client's, food processes, and the significance to public health of those hazards.
