I grow various crops as specified in my scope for Freshcare FSQ Certification. Do I have to have a residue test completed for each crop type?
The Freshcare Food Safety & Quality Standard requires each participating business to have an annual broad spectrum chemical residue test conducted by a NATA-accredited laboratory on one crop specified under their Freshcare scope.
Therefore multiple residue tests are not required for Freshcare FSQ Certification, just one crop test per year. It is however recommended that you rotate between crops when testing each year.
Please note that customer specific requirements may differ to Freshcare requirements and hence residue testing per crop type may be necessary for some customers.
