Article 5 of the European Regulation 852/2004 on the hygiene of foods requires also from health food and food supplement companies to bring only safe products on the EU market based on a detailed analysis of all safety aspects of the ingredients, the production and the use by the consumer. All these aspects need to be addressed in a HACCP-system, adjusted to the company.
HACCP requires a description of activities of the company in the context of quality and safety of the products, quality agreements with suppliers and per product by a thorough safety assessment.
Rivendell developed over the years a system, several documents and guidelines / procedures, how health food and food supplement companies in the EU can work with HACCP based on EU principles, with all known hazards for generally used food supplements / active ingredients and the seriousness (risk analysis) of these hazards. .
The system, in English, suitable for companies that distribute products (produced by HACCP approved manufacturars) in the EU, like webshops, wholesalers, marketing companies, can be bought from Rivendell.
