At Select Fresh we take food safety very seriously. We recognised very early that a process was required to ensure that the fresh produce coming from the markets to our warehouse was transported and stored in a manner that maximised the freshness of the fruit and vegetables. Select Fresh has achieved Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) certification. In fact, Select Fresh has been fully HACCP Accredited since 2002, the first fresh fruit and vegetable supplier in Western Australia to do so.
This means we have established a rigorous methodology to ensure that all aspects of our operation conform to the highest standards of health and safety in the storing, handling, packing and transportation of your fresh produce. This method of operation enables us to provide a consistently high quality of service, whilst monitoring and documenting the processes involved in delivering quality produce to our customers.
“HACCP is an internationally recognised method of identifying and managing risk and, when central to an active food safety programme, can provide vendors, the public and government sector bodies with a high degree of comfort that food safety is being taken seriously and is well managed. The concept is not new however. Researchers and suppliers to the NASA space programme developed the system to avoid the potentially disastrous consequences of failure above the earth’s atmosphere. Today, many of the world’s best manufacturers and vendors use the system as a basis for their quality management programmes.” (HACCP Australia website)
