  • На предлог на ХОТАМ оваа година Агенцијата за храна и ветеринарство издаде водич за HACCP принципите за операторите со храна, а особено во угостителството. На 18.12.2014 во соработка на АХВ, ССКМ и ХОТАМ се организира завршната работилница за промоција и дистрибуција на овој водич.

На завршната работилница „Интензивирање на имплементацијата на HACCP во угостителските објекти во Република Македонија” во Сојузот на стопански комори, Поповски подвлече дека сите компании го имаат имплементирано HACCP кој е законска обврска, но тоа не е доволно.
