What is GMP & HACCP?

We here at Kutaan believe food to be one of the most important aspects of life. Food is sustenance, but not only sustenance, it’s also gratification, medicine and given to another person, a sign of love.

Now, it would be quite sad if your sustenance, source of gratification, love, and medicine weren’t safe, as I’m sure you would agree. As a matter of fact, if that were the case, well, then food would serve quite the opposite purpose of the previously mentioned attributes.

This is why Kutaan is all about safety and it’s also the reason I thought we would go over what our company policy is as well as what GMP & HACCP means to you as a consumer.

In addition to having our cricket powder GMP certified we also have HACCP certification.

HACCP is a standardized working method which describes how you systematically map, estimate and check forhazards in food production. The reason why is so that you as a consumer will have food that’s safe to consume.

HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points

HACCP is based on 7 principals.

In short, the 7 principals consists out of:

  • Identifying hazards
  • Identifying points where the hazard can be controlled
