West Australian fruit and vegetables are known for their quality, freshness and safety. In order to help growers continue to meet high industry standards, vegetablesWA offers free Quality Assurance (QA) assistance to vegetable growers, funded through the APC-VPC (grower fee for service).
This program enables growers to access assistance to implement on-farm QA programs. Services on offer are:
- Assistance with Correct Action Required (CAR) and Maximum Residue Limit (MRL)
- Pre-audit checks for vegetable growers
- In addition to the above, vegetablesWA can provide Freshcare training as a paid service to vegetable growers at a reduced rate.
