Melon food safety – monitoring and support (VM20005)

Key research provider: NSW Department of Primary Industries

What’s it all about?

This project is building a strong food safety culture within the melon industry by providing a food safety testing and environmental monitoring program. The goal is to ensure the adoption of improved food safety practice is maintained within the industry. This investment will be the key to consistently delivering safe fruit and maintaining consumers and trading partners’ confidence in Australian melons – which is essential for the success of export projects and market access maintenance.

The project will also leverage previous investments by reviewing the project reports and building upon the existing knowledge and current industry practices.

Project progress and information will also be delivered via the industry communication program Melon industry communication program (VM20006).
