Freshcare operates as an industry benefit organisation, providing assurance standards for the Australian fresh produce industry.
Freshcare is an accredited standard as approved by JAS-ANZ (the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand) to operate under ISO/IEC17065:2012. As an accredited standard, Freshcare is recognised against the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), and thus is an approved base standard under HARPS (www.harpsonline.com.au).
Please note Tier 3 suppliers that are currently maintaining a Codex HACCP certification may need to change to a HARPS approved base scheme before 1 January 2019.
