Special attention is required regarding food hygiene when animals are slaughtered at abattoirs or when milk is produced on farms, as these foods may serve as vehicles of transmission of health hazards.

This category includes a wide range of processed foods that have been manufactured using complex and highly technical methods to ensure food safety, extend shelf-life, reduce spoilage and to facilitate trade. Principles of food safety management need to be strictly applied in order to minimize the risk of potential food safety hazards.
