Harmonised Australian Retailer Produce Scheme (HARPS)

Published on October 2, 2015


HARPS is the Harmonised Australian Retailer Produce Scheme, funded by Horticulture Innovation Australia (HIA) at the request of industry. HARPS aims to reduce the costs associated with the adoption, maintenance and auditing of multiple food safety systems by individual suppliers to multiple retail customers in Australia. One audit visit, against a base scheme plus HARPS, means a direct vendor can supply multiple retail customers.
