Wednesday, 18 June 2014 | Posted in Standards by Erin Hart

Funded by HAL through its Across Industry Program, the guidelines cover the growing, harvesting, packing, storage and dispatch stages of horticultural production and provide a platform for creating environmental auditing and certification options relevant to Australian environmental issues.
