The Fresh Produce Safety Centre–Australia & New Zealand was established in May 2014 by the Produce Marketing Association Australia–New Zealand in partnership with the University of Sydney through a Horticulture Innovation Australia (HIA) project.
The Centre is funded with voluntary and in-kind pledges from supporters in industry, Sydney University and PMA A-NZ.
University of Sydney Faculty of Agriculture and Environment
The Faculty of Agriculture and Environment explores new frontiers in food production, carbon cycling and agricultural sustainability. The critical issues facing the world today shape our research and teaching towards a focus on the sustainability of the system in the face of environmental challenges and a burgeoning global population.
The University of Sydney has a strong background in research and the Faculty of Agriculture and Environment is positioned to provide in-house produce safety research and outreach to the Australian fresh produce industry. The University of Sydney, Faculty of Agriculture and Environment is launching a new Bachelor of Food and Agribusiness degree, commencing in 2014.
