The New Zealand Food Safety team has been hearing that some councils and verifiers are concerned about food businesses using digital Food Control Plans (FCPs) and record keeping.

We have heard some councils and verifiers are advising food businesses to “use MPI's free online information as no app is up to standard”, “you can only use paper”, or that “no app meets the requirements”.


We are completely comfortable with food businesses or third parties digitising our templates and guidance (which is permitted under our copyright licence as long as they acknowledge the source). If a digital template Food Control Plan (FCP) helps a food business meet its food safety requirements, we’re all for it!
