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 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.
