HACCP APP Is Offering a $1,000 Scholarship
$1000 Scholarship for food service & hospitality students using food safety as an ingredient.
The HACCP APP is offering a $1,000 scholarship for any “student pursing an education in a restaurant, food-service, or hospitality.” The company, HACCP APP, sent me an email to let me know about the scholarship and I wanted to share it with anyone interested.
If you’re asking why I am posting this information, it’s because besides being a site for home cooks offering cooking tips, tales, techniques and recipes, the reluctantgourmet.com website also is a great information source for anyone thinking of getting into the professional culinary world as a chef, baker or hospitality person.
While most of my site is directed to helping beginner and intermediate cooks improve their cooking skills, it is also has a directory of schools listed by state for anyone interested in getting into the “business.” And I would very much appreciate you spreading the word to any of your family or friends interested in a culinary career to come check out my site.

What Is HACCP?
HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points. According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, HACCP is a “management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product. ”
Basically, it is an internationally recognized system for reducing the risk of any kind of safety hazards pertaining to food. It is based on 7 core principles that I’m not going to go into now but can write about in a future post.
Who IS HACCP APP?
According to their website, HACCP APP is ” a team of well-seasoned chefs and food safety experts who were frustrated by the quantity of HACCP related paperwork to complete. Joining together, they decided to create an easy, digital solution that they would want to use on a daily basis.”
They offer a way for anyone in the food service or food production industry to transition into an inexpensive paperless environment with the help of their app. You can learn more about them at their website.
