The Fresh Produce Safety Centre (FPSC), working with Freshcare, today launched three new simple food safety flyers for the fresh produce industry. The three flyers draw from chapters from the FPSC’s Guidelines for Fresh Produce Food Safety, and are easy-to-understand tools for businesses across the supply chain.

Chair of the FPSC, Dr. Andreas Klieber, said: “We are keen to promote tools and resources to help everyone in our industry understand the key food safety issues and the practices we need to follow to produce safe, quality food, day in and day out.”

The three flyers focus on:
•    Managing water
•    Managing chemicals
•    Managing people

The flyers will be distributed throughout FPSC and Freshcare networks.

“FPSC and Freshcare worked together on producing these flyers, and they are useful for the whole supply chain,” Dr Klieber said.

“We encourage all businesses, small and large, to promote these resources to increase knowledge and improve practices for optimum food safety,” he said.

Freshcare CEO Jane Siebum said: “Freshcare is delighted to partner with the FPSC on these new food safety resources and we plan to share them with our networks across the whole supply chain.”

The FPSC plans to produce more flyers on other topics from the Guidelines for Fresh Produce Food Safety.
