Event description
The seminar will address food safety across the fresh produce sector, providing information on the types of hazards that may be encountered

About this Event

In recent years the safety of fresh produce has come under increased scrutiny from regulators, retailers, and the public because of a series of high-profile incidents which have impacted the health of consumers. These incidents have included Salmonella in salad products and sprouts, Hepatitis A virus in pomegranate arils and raspberries, and Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella in rockmelons.

While the majority of fruit and vegetable products pose a low risk to public health, there are selected products and specific handling practices which may present a higher risk to consumers.

The seminar will address food safety across the fresh produce sector, providing information on the types of hazards that may be encountered and provide guidance on how to reduce the risks.

Speakers will outline research developments, regulatory requirements, and describe control and management strategies which will reduce the risk for consumers. The target audience includes business owners and quality assurance and food safety managers covering the supply chain from growers to pack houses to retailers.

Key areas to be covered in the seminar:

- Food safety hazards and current research activities in the fresh produce sector

- Best practice for preventing and managing hazards

- Regulatory requirements and developments

- Measuring and controlling pathogens in fresh produce
