The Cooperative Research Centre of Honey Bee Products (CRCHBP) has partnered with B-QUAL to help drive efforts in honey quality assurance.
B-QUAL is an industry owned and developed food safety program that aims to ensure 90% of honey produced in Australia is quality assured for the domestic and international markets. This is achieved through nationally standardised training materials for quality auditing including workshops and manuals, and through the development on an industry biosecurity plan.
The CRCHBP will be working with B-QUAL to help digitise their existing certification process, and develop a new membership for biosecurity auditing. This partnership presents an ideal opportunity for ensuring Australian honey remains at the highest quality.
