I have more than one growing site, and the rules tell me these all must be registered, why did the rules change?

Published on July 10, 2019

The Freshcare Rules around the application of a business to be certified to a Freshcare Standard and the requirement for all sites to be listed has not changed.

What we have given is a clarification around the maximum allowable distance between sites that can be visited as the audit and that all sites with infrastructure attached must be visited every Audit. Sampling by the auditor can then occur on other sites, based on risk.

This intent has always been in place, but Freshcare has responded to concerns from Participating Businesses, that not everyone is treated equally in the application of these rules, so we have sought to add further wording to be clear.
