The Quality Assurance project assists growers with maintaining their high-quality food safety standards. The project provides on-farm consultations and auditing on their chemical handling and food safety standards.
The project enables:
- Pre-audit/post-audit checks and support for vegetable growers
- Freshcare training at a reduced rate
- Communication and information distribution to growers in the event of a food safety crisis
It is paramount that Western Australian growers maintain their quality and safety standards, and the Quality Assurance project allows growers to access assistance with these on-farm practices.
A general reference guide in the form of a checklist is available here. Please download the External Audit Preparation Checklist and work through it to ensure you are correctly prepared for an audit.
*This is a reference guide only. Further advice and/or activities may be required to comply with specific quality assurance programs. Not all elements listed may be required for compliance with your QA standards
