Recognised Food Safety Programs
Food Safety Programs Recognised by Freshcare
The Freshcare Food Safety & Quality (FSQ) and Food Safety & Quality – Supply Chain (FSQ-SC) Standards outline specific requirements under Element F11 Suppliers, for produce represented for sale as Freshcare certified.
Freshcare certified businesses sourcing or packing other produce must ensure all produce they represent for sale as ‘Freshcare certified’ has been grown and packed by a business currently certified to Freshcare FSQ or FSQ-SC; or currently certified to an alternate, approved GFSI benchmarked standard.
