At the recent Freshcare Workshop 11-12 April 2013, Associate Professor Robyn McConchie (USyd) delivered a presentation on “Whats new in Food Safety for you?”

The presentation was based on information provided by Dr Bob Whitaker (PMA) and Ms Bonnie Fernandez-Fenaroli (CPS) and summarises some of the food safety research made available at the Center for Produce Safety 2012 Research Symposium.

The presentation was informative and concise, highlighting what the research is telling us about reducing risk in fresh produce safety. The areas of focus were:

  • Composting
  • Irrigation water
  • Animal Vectors
  • Wash water

The presentation was followed by a facilitated discussion on filling the knowledge gaps and prioritising areas for food safety research specific to an Australian context. The session was facilitated by Emma Walters, (Emma Walters & Associates).
