Freshcare Food Safety Program

Freshcare is an industry owned non-for-profit on-farm assurance program used to provide benefits to both suppliers and clients. As of 1st August 2010, BSI provides auditing to the Freshcare Food Safety Program.

Certification to the Freshcare Food Safety Code of Practice, involves an independent (3rd party) verification by an approved certification body such as BSI. This verification process recognizes that the On-Farm Food Safety Program is compliant to the Freshcare Food Safety Program requirements. Freshcare is currently the largest Australian on–farm assurance program for fresh produce.
