Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai has become the first five-star hotel in Dubai to be awarded HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) certification. “The hotel managed to achieve this certification ahead of the Dubai Municipality deadline thanks to our well established group-wide Shangri-La Food Safety Management System (SFSMS),” said Bernhard Haechler, area manager and general manager, Shangri-La Hotel Dubai. “This accomplishment is a testament to the high standards of health and safety set within the hotel and reinforces Shangri-La Hotel's commitment to quality in all areas of hospitality.” The HACCP certification process takes approximately six to twelve months and involves substantial training and implementation of HACCP policies and procedures. Even before the advent of HACCP in Dubai, Shangri-La Hotels had implemented a unique proprietary food safety management system — SFSMS. The system consists of international hygiene standards which encompass supplier standards, food processing, as well as staff training. To ensure consistent compliance to these standards, third party audits are conducted by Johnson Diversey twice a year and all Shangri-La properties are expected to score at least 95%.
