Yes, SQF (Safe Quality Food) program does credit a facility for HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) trained employees. The SQF program is a food safety management system that includes HACCP principles as a core component.
One of the requirements of the SQF program is that the facility has a team of trained individuals who are responsible for implementing and maintaining the food safety management system, including the HACCP plan. The SQF program also requires that all personnel involved in the handling, preparation, and service of food must be trained in food safety and hygiene. The SQF codes also specify the requirement of HACCP-trained personnel as a part of the food safety management system.
In summary, SQF recognizes the importance of HACCP-trained employees in the implementation and maintenance of a food safety management system, and it is mandatory for the facility to have a team of trained personnel to meet the requirements of the SQF program.
