In the development of Graincare,
the potential hazards common across all grain enterprises were identified
and the requirements for control measures and monitoring activities
described. The basic Graincare program is a food and feed safety assurance program, based
on HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical
principles and independently audited, but it does not include HACCP plans
at the farm level.
Grain growers who have a
requirement for a HACCP plan in their quality assurance system now
have the opportunity to add a module to their current Graincare accreditation.
The new module incorporates a
full Codex HACCP element. The
basic Graincare program with the
additional HACCP module is called Graincare +.
If you are already accredited
with Graincare you can ‘add on’ the HACCP module. The development and
implementation of a HACCP plan for your enterprise is carried out with an
accredited HACCP practitioner, so there will be some additional costs
involved. However, this will
be kept to a minimum to provide a low cost, but effective food and feed
The result is we have a quality
assurance system with Graincare and
now Graincare + that will
provide buyers and processors with the confidence that the grain they are
purchasing is of a high standard.
