Today’s Food Industry has responsibility to provide most consuming food for people. These foods are consumed by large area of society. So they are important source of causes of diseases and food poisoning. Monitoring system have been created to control these diseases and they are used in duration of production step of food supply chain. Hazard Assurance Critical Control Point (HACCP) is regarded as best method in safety system. Necessity to create integrated HACCP system forced factories to use intelligent methods to build HACCP for every production. This paper proposes Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) technique and use of paired comparisons tables and similarity equations to create HACCP for food system of Sabz Nam Company. Our system is an intelligent system has based on RFID and it works as consulter by generating five proper safety suggestion to food expert. Finally we assess accuracy and efficiency of proposed system on real data of Sabz Nam Company.
