Welcome to the Managing Food Fraud and Food Defence using VACCP & TACCP one day course. The food industry sees the safety of its products as its main concern in two distinct groups: deliberate food threats and economically motivated vulnerabilities. These types of attacks may have food safety implications but can also harm organisations in other ways, such as damaging reputation or extorting money. Vulnerability Assessment Critical Control Point (VACCP) and Threat assessment Critical Control Points (TACCP) are methods and tools used by the food industry to identify, manage and mitigate and vulnerabilities and threats identified.
