Unsafe food can impact public health and can cause serious issues within food businesses. Therefore, the implementation of a food safety management system is required, and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) is an essential system to ensure the safety of food. However, it can be a significant amount of work to maintain, if the system is paperbased. There are many issues, which often arise during its application, and paperwork is one of the biggest challenges, as well as inaccurate information. Other barriers include time needed and effort. Therefore, the main proposal of this research is to examine the effectiveness of software-based HACCP systems, such as the FoodCheck system and determine if can help to solve the issues, which typically result from traditional paper-based HACCP systems. The results outline several solutions offered by FoodCheck, namely, the saving of time and resources.
