The purpose of this Proposal was to consider the development of a primary production and processing (PPP) standard for horticulture as part of a series of national food safety standards. After reviewing submissions received on the first call for submissions report and after targeted consultation with stakeholders, the FSANZ Board agreed to abandon the Proposal in favour of non-regulatory measures.
