Food safety training, extension and capacity for the melon industry – phase 2 (VM18003)
What’s it all about?
This investment is strengthening the food safety systems of the Australian melon industry, by supporting the adoption of best practice across the supply chain. It follows initial investment Food safety, training, extension and capacity for the melon industry (VM17002) and, like its predecessor, supports food safety training activities across the country for melon growers, farm managers and key farm staff. With the initial project focusing on rockmelons, this second phase includes watermelon businesses as well.
Information on the project’s training opportunities is circulated through the Australian Melon Association.
The project is also delivering a Best Practice Guide to help the industry identify and manage potential microbial risks, along with other essential food safety information and resources.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Melon Fund
