Hobart masterclass for fruit & vegetable industry

A masterclass will be hosted in Hobart on 30 November 2016 by two food safety research centres— the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture Food Safety Centre, and the Fresh Produce Safety Centre of Australia & New Zealand. 

This masterclass will give food safety professionals, product technologists and food product entrepreneurs, insights into tools which can be used to add value to fresh products and take their products into entirely new categories.



Richard Bennett, the FPSC technology manager explains: “This masterclass is about delivering the latest knowledge and information to put substance behind our clean and green claims. It’s showcasing new ways as well as innovative new products and product uses. We must have integrity to support our market expectations of safe food from a well managed environment. This masterclass will focus on managing important risks to our reputation.”

“The FPSC is delighted to be co-hosting this masterclass with Tasmania's Food Safety Centre. This event is a great opportunity for fresh food businesses to hear from food safety experts” said Michael Worthington, FPSC chairman.

Tasmanian based consultant and Telstra Tasmanian Corporate and Private Awards Finalist, Belinda Hazell, explains, ‘Anyone, from growers and pack house operators, to students and agribusiness professionals, throughout the supply chain, will definitely benefit from attending this signature event’ 

The event, titled “Masterclass: Building capability and safety in fresh produce” runs from 9 am to 1 pm, at the Sandy Bay campus of the University of Tasmania. Registration is $40.
