Manitoba Agriculture Food Safety Recognition Program

Manitoba Agriculture staff conducts food safety audits of implemented Manitoba HACCP Advantage programs.  Upon completion of a successful audit, a food processing facility receives a certificate of recognition. 

This audit program allows non-federally registered food processing facilities to receive government recognition of their food safety program.   

The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) has a grain-specific food safety program called CGC HACCP. If a food processing plant is certified by CGC, it is considered as meeting the Manitoba HACCP Advantage program standards and receives a Manitoba Agriculture certificate of recognition as well.
