2014 – Fresh Produce Safety Centre

Fresh Produce Safety Centre

The Fresh Produce Safety Centre Ltd (FPSC) has been established by the Produce Marketing Association Australia-New Zealand (PMA A-NZ) through a project with the University of Sydney. This project is funded by Horticulture Innovation Australia (HIA) with voluntary and in-kind contributions from industry, the University and PMA A-NZ, demonstrating widespread support for the Centre.

The FPSC is an industry-led, not-for-profit organisation established to enhance fresh produce food safety across Australia and New Zealand through research, outreach and education.

The Centre is based at the Faculty of Agriculture & Environment at the University of Sydney and affiliated with the Centre for Produce Safety at the University of California (Davis).

The FPSC goals are to:

  • call for and oversee food safety research projects that are highly relevant to industry;
  • provide food safety information, news, education and outreach to the industry;
  • engage with regulatory and other organisations for effective and efficient food safety management leading to enhanced food safety outcomes.

The FPSC website freshproducesafety-anz.com provides open access to actionable information for fresh produce businesses and government to continually enhance the safety and quality of fruit and vegetables.

Freshcare is a proud supporter of the FPSC.
