FPSC 2025 Innovation Agenda
The FPSC 2025 Innovation Agenda focuses on transformational risk management in fresh produce food safety by tapping into indigenous and global talent within fresh produce, the research community, and the technology and innovation experts outside our natural space to help find solutions.
Under the FPSC 2025 Innovation Agenda we aim to ask – and answer – the challenging questions to strive towards safer food in New Zealand and Australia.
