2000 – Freshcare Establishment
Freshcare Ltd was established as a not-for-profit industry organisation to drive the development of the new auditable code of practice and to manage the program.
Peak industry bodies representing growers and wholesalers became the ‘owner members’ from which the Board of Freshcare is elected.
The owner organisations also provide a vital conduit for information flow between Freshcare and participating businesses.
A Freshcare Office was also established to manage the day-to-day business of the organisation and a Technical Steering Committee established to oversee future code development.« Back to History
