Contamination of fruits, vegetables and nuts can be a significant challenge for the horticulture industry, negatively affecting the ‘clean, green and safe’ reputation, both in the domestic and export markets.
The Health, Nutrition & Food Safety Fund focusses on research to support consumer confidence.
Food safety and nutrition is a priority for consumers and growers. The Health, Nutrition & Food Safety Fund supports consumer confidence through the adoption of high quality, safe and nutritious produce and value-added food derived from fruit, vegetables and nuts, and the development of novel products, technologies and processes. It focuses on four priority areas: the value chain, consumer behaviour, innovation and adoption.
