Food safety, training, extension and capacity for the melon industry (VM17002)
What's it all about?
Contracted in May 2017, this investment is intended to strengthen the food safety systems of the Australian melon industry, by supporting the adoption of best practice across the supply chain.
It supports training activities across the country for melon growers, farm managers and key farm staff, and is also tasked with delivering a best practice ‘toolbox’ with essential food safety information and resources.
Information on training opportunities is circulated through the Australian Melon Association.
