Produce Industry Traceability Guidelines

August 2021

Three years ago, United Fresh was successful with its Sustainable Food and Fibre Futures grant application, for the purpose of developing a set of fresh produce industry Traceability Guidelines.

These Guidelines are the product of three years’ worth of work, which involved producing a literature review; developing and conducting field trials with the assistance of strawberry and lettuce growers, with these crops serving as exemplars; developing a set of Draft Guidelines on the basis of our analysis and learnings; and consulting widely with industry on current practices, on future options and on Best Practice.

The final guidelines can be accessed here.
