Fresh Produce Safety Centre

Published on October 2, 2015

The Fresh Produce Safety Centre (FPSC) provides open access to actionable information for fresh produce businesses and government to continually enhance the safety and quality of fruit and vegetables.

The FPSC aim to raise awareness and to increase the collaboration between stakeholders of the Australian and New Zealand fresh produce industry, as well as establish global partnerships to better utilise the information available.

Any outbreak of food-borne illness (even if not originating from on-farm) will impact the entire fresh produce sector, therefore fresh produce safety and traceability is of the utmost importance for all levels of the supply chain including growers, packers, processors, distributors, wholesalers and retailers.

The FPSC website covers all aspects of fresh produce safety by supplying valuable information and resources, providing research with practical application, and identifying the knowledge gaps in fresh produce safety.
