The EnviroVeg program is changing for the better: better resources, better useability, better connection to research and development, better harmonisation with other environmental management programs and better benefits to growers.

Certification for Freshcare Environmental, a fresh produce environmental assessment program, now underpins EnviroVeg: any certified members of EnviroVeg will meet the requirements of the program, which is needed to access EnviroVeg branding.

The self-assessment portion of EnviroVeg is redeveloping and moving online, and will be housed on the platform that contains Hort360. This move will add value not only to the self-assessment, but to existing program resources like the redeveloped EnviroVeg manual and new resources being delivered by the program.

AUSVEG Environment Coordinator Andy Shaw will be hosting an update for EnviroVeg members and industry stakeholders at Hort Connections 2018 on Monday 18 June, where he’ll show interested parties how the new program works and how it can be used to help you identify and implement environmental best practice for your farm. Get all the details on this relaunch event on the Hort Connections website.
