What is in the Three Star package?
One Star and Two Star are both pre-requisites for the Three Star level. However, all programs may be implemented at the same time if required.

The Three Star package contains:

  • Training voucher for two people to attend a two-hour Three Star workshop

  • Three Star Handbooks (2) 

  • Three Star Manual containing examples of forms to administer the program

  • PowerPoint® presentation to train supervisors and key food handlers

  • Word ® documents to customise for your business.


How to achieve the Three Star level?
The Food Star Supervisor (and another person from the business):

  • Attends the Three Star Workshop to learn how to implement the Three Star level

  • Assembles a HACCP team to co-ordinate: 

  • Pre-HACCP activities

  • HACCP activities

  • Post-HACCP activities

  • Conducts skills assessment to make sure critical control points are managed appropriately and that One and Two Star standards are maintained.

A Three Star certificate is awarded when a Food Stars Assessor confirms the One, Two and Three Star standards have been achieved.

1. Workshop

The Food Stars Supervisor (and another person from the business) attends a two-hour workshop to learn how to implement the program using the Three Star package.

A voucher for two people to attend the workshop is included in the Three Star package.  Extra people may attend the workshop for a small fee. (See Price List).

2. Pre-HACCP activities

The Food Stars Supervisor assembles a HACCP team to identify and develop:

  • Organisation chart

  • Scope of program

  • Product descriptions

  • Suppliers list

  • Floor plan of premises


3. HACCP activities

The HACCP team will:

  • Develop a process flow chart

  • Analyse hazards at each step, their significance and how to control them

  • Identify critical control points and prepare a hazard audit table to manage them.

  • The PowerPoint® presentation in the training package may help provide an overview of HACCP principles to the HACCP team to help them develop appropriate documents.


4. Post-HACCP activities

The HACCP team will:

  • Establish a record keeping system

  • Train staff to monitor critical control points

  • Monitor data

  • Review the HACCP system regularly.

The Food Stars Supervisor/HACCP team can use the One, Two and Three Star Skills Assessments to check that all elements of Three Star have been implemented. The business may choose to have an independent assessment by a Food Stars Assessor.

5. Food Stars Assessment/Certification

The Food Stars Assessor will check that:

  • One and Two Star standards have been maintained

  • Three Star administration and HACCP documents have been developed and implemented


A Three Star certificate is only awarded when a Food Stars Assessor confirms that all One, Two and Three Star requirements have been achieved.

Annual Food Stars audits

Some businesses need evidence to demonstrate to their clients that they have a food safety program based on HACCP principles. 

Businesses may request an annual Three Star audit by a Food Stars Auditor. If the audit is successful, a gold Food Stars certificate may be awarded to recognise the ongoing maintenance of the One, Two and Three Star standards.
