Recent Outbreaks With High Risk Horticulture

By Dr. Craig Shadbolt, Biosecurity & Food Safety Compliance, NSW Department of Primary Industries
Fresh produce in Australia enjoys a reputation of being ‘clean and green’, with a significant amount of fruit and vegetables going to valuable export markets. However, horticultural commodities in Australia are increasingly recognised as sources of foodborne illness and disease outbreaks. These incidents can have a significant impact on consumer health, and lasting damage to industry reputation and market access. Industry and food safety regulators are responding to these outbreaks through a variety of programs to improve food safety from farm-to-fork.
