Queensland Tomato Quality Management
This project was undertaken in order to conduct an industry-wide training in quality management. The first phase of this project was a case study with the Queensland company SP Exports located near Bundaberg. At the end of the case study, the company had achieved ISO 9002 and AQIS CA (Certification Assurance) accreditation. The second phase was an industry-wide training project carried out in the major Queensland tomato producing areas of Bowen, Bundaberg, Lockyer Valley and Stanthorpe. The focus of the training was to increase the knowledge and skills of growers so that they could improve their own quality management systems to whatever levels they desired.
