Abstract

Ice cream is a widely enjoyed food that is especially popular during summer. To ensure it is safe and ready-to-eat for consumers, legislation imposes a series of obligations for food business operators, and for competent authorities that have to carry out official controls, including official sampling. This article reviews the general and specific requirements applicable to the premises where ice cream is produced, concerning aspects related to health notification obligations and to implementing and maintaining procedures based on the principles of the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point system. The review extends to results stemming from the most recent official control activities conducted in Italy, and to future perspectives on control methods that will have to be compliant with the provisions of the new EU Regulation 625/2017 applicable from 2019.
