New horticulture standards proposed

Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ) are investigating options for primary production and processing requirements for the raw horticultural produce sector. It has developed a new proposal to explore what measures are required to manage food safety hazards associated with fresh produce such as fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, tree nuts and edible flowers. The proposal is available at: horticultural proposal. FSANZ invites written submissions by 21 May.
