We propose a modified HACCP model (MHACCP) of improved quality and economic effectiveness. In addition to the traditional and socially important HACCP mission of food safety, it targets farm competitiveness as a key issue of economic development. MHACCP is an attempt to incorporate the interests of food producers and consumers in Bulgaria for better human healthcare and economic prosperity.
In the present study, the hazard analysis, Critical Control Points (CCP) and correction acts for the third sub-objective of MHACCP are systematized in 14 programs in view of their more convenient, easy and accurate way to apply in primary poultry and egg production. Each program encompasses different sectors of the entire technological process. Introducing all 14 programs is the correct decision in high tech farms. On the other hand, for low tech farms it is recommended to introduce 3 to 4 or more programs with some compromises in terms of hazard assessment and evaluation of economic efficiency.

Key words: modified HACCP model, hazard analysis, CCP, programs
