AUSVEG is pleased to announce that leading sterilisation company Steritech has renewed its Strategic Partnership, with this long-term partnership continuing to deliver benefits for the Australian vegetable and potato industries.

Steritech is a leader in decontamination services, and introduced the world’s first whole-pallet irradiator customised to treat fresh fruit and vegetables at its hub in Queensland.

This facility provides phytosanitary treatments for fresh produce that don’t require the cold chain to be broken during treatment, and is a valuable tool for pursuing the highest possible quality and freshness for Australian produce.

Importantly, this innovative, chemical-free alternative to existing export treatments has enhanced the flexibility of Australian growers and exporters to deliver cleaner, fresher fruit faster. Australia has currently established irradiation protocols to seven markets that include USA, New Zealand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Cook Islands.

Through this partnership with AUSVEG, Steritech is supporting our work advocating for the interests of Australian vegetable growers, as well as supporting us in providing events and services for the industry.
