Ensuring Safe Food Products in Germany

Currently, recalls of food are becoming more frequent. Consumers are becoming increasingly insecure. Food safety is decisive for the reputation of a company. and bilacon helps you to bring safe food onto the market, because Regulation (EC) No. 178/2002 Art. 14 (1) states:

“Foods that are not safe must not be placed on the market.

Foods that are harmful to health or unsuitable for consumption are classified as unsafe. Our goal is to ensure the safety of your food.


Food monitoring in Germany


In Germany, food inspectors carry out unannounced inspections in food businesses. They check the personnel, the machines, the premises and whether hygiene and disinfection regulations are adhered to. Samples are taken and swabs made, which are officially controlled. Companies must also ensure and document the safety and quality of their food through regular self-monitoring.

Regulation (EC) No. 852/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the hygiene of foodstuffs replaced the previous Food Hygiene Regulation (LMHV) with effect from 1 January 2006. Like the Food Hygiene Regulation, Regulation (EC) No. 852/2004 applies to the professional production, treatment and marketing of foodstuffs. The basis of the advisory controls is compliance with Article 5 of Regulation (EC) No. 852/2004, which stipulates that every food business operator operating at any stage of the production, processing or distribution of food must establish, implement and maintain one or more permanent procedures. These are based on the HACCP principles and must guarantee the safety of consumer health protection.
