HACCP, TACCP and VACCP Certifications

At Rubicon Technical, we pride ourselves on providing top-quality services to our clients. We understand the importance of product safety and maintaining high standards in your supply chain. That’s why we offer HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points), VACCP (Vulnerability Assessment and Critical Control Points), and TACCP (Threat Assessment and Critical Control Points) quality services.


HACCP, or Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, is a globally recognised methodology for ensuring the safety of food products. It is a systematic and preventive approach that identifies and mitigates potential hazards in the production, processing, packaging, and distribution of food products. By implementing a HACCP plan, food businesses can effectively manage and control food safety hazards, resulting in safe and high-quality products.

At Rubicon, we offer a range of HACCP services, including study writing, review, and certification, to help businesses meet their food safety obligations. Our team of experts work with businesses to develop customised HACCP plans that meet international standards and comply with local regulations. Our comprehensive services involve identifying potential hazards, control measures, and critical control points in the food production process to ensure maximum safety and quality.


TACCP is a critical element of food safety management, and specifically addresses the risks that arise from a deliberate and malicious act such as contamination, adulteration, and tampering. TACCP stands for Threat Assessment and Critical Control Points, and it is a preventative and proactive approach to ensure the safety and security of your food products.

At Rubicon, we offer a range of TACCP services to help businesses identify and manage food safety risks caused by malicious intent. Our team of experts will conduct a thorough and comprehensive risk assessment to identify potential threats to your food products. We will then design and implement a customised TACCP plan unique to your business that incorporates critical control points to help mitigate those risks.


VACCP, or Vulnerability Assessment and Critical Control Points, is a key element of food safety management, and specifically addresses the risks that arise from intentional and economically motivated adulteration. In today’s increasingly complex food supply chain, businesses face significant risks of food fraud, and VACCP is an essential tool to manage those risks.

At Rubicon, we offer a range of VACCP services to help businesses identify and manage the risks of food fraud. Our team of experts will conduct a comprehensive vulnerability assessment to identify and prioritise the most significant risks. We will then work with your business to design and implement a customised VACCP plan that incorporates critical control points to help mitigate those risks.

 Our HACCP, TACCP and VACCP services are compliant with ISO standards and other globally recognised references, ensuring maximum safety and security for your products.
