Food Producers, Processors, Transporters, and Retailers: Food Security Preventive Measures Guidance [PDF]
Abstract: This guidance is designed as an aid to operators of food establishments (i.e. firms that produce, process, store, repack, relabel, distribute, or transport food or food ingredients or that prepare or distribute food at retail). It identifies preventive measures that they can take to minimize the risk that food under their control will be subject to tampering or criminal or terrorist actions. It is relevant to all sectors of the food system (i.e., from farm-to-table), including farms, aquaculture facilities, fishing vessels, producers, transportation operations, processing facilities, packing facilities, warehouses, and retail and food-service establishments. This guidance is designed to focus operators sequentially on each segment of the farm-to-table system that is within their control, to minimize the risk of tampering or criminal or terrorist action at each segment.
