Australia’s fruit industry is renowned for its world-class safety standards, including its innovative traceability systems. “This means that each batch of fruit can be tracked from the farm, to the packing house, and then on the ship during its voyage to the Philippines”, Senior Trade Commissioner Weymouth explained.
