Safe Food Production Queensland will also provide such information for a wide range of other food industries (e.g. seafood and horticulture) as the organisation develops food safety schemes for these industries over the coming years.
Since January 2003, Food Safety Schemes have been implemented for meat, dairy produce, seafood, eggs and egg products.
