Health and Safety

Cafe2U was the first Mobile Coffee Van Franchise System in Australia to achieve Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) Food Safety System Certification - an internationally recognized method of identifying and managing risks.

HACCP is part of an active food safety program that provides the public with a high degree of comfort that food safety is being taken seriously and is being well managed.

The Cafe2U food safety program is so much more than just HACCP. To be more effective, all sub-systems, recall protocols, hygiene and cleaning programs have been developed and implemented.

Cafe2U maintains its accreditation with BSI (British Standards Institute), the global leader in HACCP ISO certification.
This means that you can rest assured that Cafe2U is not only the best quality, but also 100% safe.
