The Freshcare Supply Chain Standard – Edition 2 consists of 3 sections:

1. The Introduction Section presenting requirements for the business to comply with the Rules of the program. 

2. The Management Section presenting requirements for the business to establish overarching management protocols. 

3. This leads into the Supply Chain Section which covers the specific food safety and quality requirements that need to be considered by businesses handling fresh product(s), and the actions and activities that must be considered and managed to ensure food is safe.
