2004 – Freshcare Environmental Code Development

Around the same time as Food Safety & Quality 2nd Edition Code was released in 2004, Horticulture Australia Limited (now Horticulture Innovation Australia (HIA)) initiated the “Horticulture for Tomorrow” program to identify strategic environmental issues to assist the Horticulture industry to improve and demonstrate good environmental management.

Freshcare Technical Steering Committee members were invited to become key editors and contributors to the development of the national publication ‘Guidelines for Environmental Assurance for Australian Horticulture’, because of their experience in developing similar resources for food safety assurance.

In parallel with the development of the new environmental assurance guidelines, Freshcare began drafting and testing an environmental assurance code.
