What is GMP?
GMP (Good manufacturing Practice) comprises the basic requirements of a manufacturing facility covering establishment, infrastructure, equipment design, construction, maintenance, process controls and personnel hygiene and awareness.
GMP is one of the pre-requisite programmes (PRP) required to be established before Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) can be implemented.
What is HACCP?
HACCP stands for - Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point
In short, HACCP system includes a series of procedures to control the process and sensitive points in the food chain, with the ultimate goal of safe food for consumers health.
HACCP is recognized as an international standard for safe food production.
Also, the World Health Organization (WHO) has adopted it as the most effective means for controlling foodborne diseases.
The HACCP system consists of two basic components:
HA - a risk analysis and hazard identification at every stage of food production and the importance of assessing risks to human health.
CCP (Critical Control Point) - are the stages in the production of which can be controlled, prevented or eliminated the risk to the safety of food, or their impact reduced to acceptable levels.

What is Organic Certification?
Organic certification is a certification process for producers of organic food and other organic agricultural products. In general, any business directly involved in food production can be certified, including seed suppliers, farmers, [food] processors, retailers, restaurants.
Requirements vary from country to country, and generally involve a set of production standards for growing, storage, processing, packaging and transportation.
Organic certification addresses a growing worldwide demand for organic food. It is intended to assure quality and prevent fraud. Always look out for the certification mark (logo) and the license number.
It is important to check that the certification is awarded to the party that is selling the product or in other words the custodian of the product.
