The On-Farm Food Safety (OFFS) Programs are Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) based food safety systems developed for various commodities to enhance food safety, maintain consumer confidence and facilitate market access. These programs comply with federal, provincial and territorial legislation and are delivered by a provincial delivery agent or by the national industry organization that owns the program. They all have gone through a thorough Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA)-led technical review process, part of the federal Food Safety Recognition Program.
