The Fresh Produce Safety Centre (FPSC) provides open access to actionable information for fresh produce businesses and government to continually enhance the safety and quality of fruit and vegetables.

We aim to raise awareness and to increase the collaboration between stakeholders of the Australian and New Zealand fresh produce industry, as well as establish global partnerships to better utilise the information available.

Any outbreak of foodborne illness will impact the entire fresh produce sector, therefore fresh produce safety and traceability is of the utmost importance for all levels of the supply chain including growers, packers, processors, distributors, wholesalers and retailers.

The FPSC website covers all aspects of fresh produce safety by supplying valuable information and resources, providing research with practical application, and identifying knowledge gaps in fresh produce safety.


The Fresh Produce Safety Centre has recently become aware that Ms Nada Day is promoting herself and her Freshstart courses and materials using a Fresh Produce Safety Centre brand.

The Fresh Produce Safety Centre would like to make it clear that neither we nor any of our affiliates endorse or have any association with Ms Day or her courses or materials.

As a matter of policy, the Fresh Produce Safety Centre does not provide acknowledgement or endorsements for commercial training providers and their materials.

Please contact us with any queries relating to this matter.
