Freshcare is currently the largest Australian assurance program for fresh produce; proudly providing food safety, quality and environmental certification services to over 5000 businesses nationally.

The foundations of the Freshcare Program are the user-friendly Standards and supporting training resources. The Freshcare Standards describe the practices required to provide assurance that fresh produce is safe to eat, meets customer specifications and legislative requirements; and has been produced with care for the environment.

Freshcare currently offers certification to the following Standards:

Freshcare Food Safety & Quality – On-Farm


Freshcare Food Safety & Quality – Supply Chain



Freshcare Environmental


Freshcare Sustainability – Viticulture


Freshcare Sustainability – Winery


The Freshcare Standards are versatile and user-friendly, created to be implemented as standalone programs or integrated as one combined assurance system. The Freshcare Standards can also be incorporated with other quality, food safety and farm management schemes.

The Freshcare Food Safety & Quality Standards are also approved base standards for HARPS.

The Freshcare Australian Wine Industry Standards of Sustainable Practice in both Viticulture and Winery are recognised standards for Sustainable Winegrowing Australia.
