Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Quality and Safety Database

The fresh fruit and vegetable quality and safety database has been developed by FAO within the framework of the Project PFL/INT/857 "Global Inventory, Reference Materials and Food Safety Training Programme for Improving the Quality and Safety of Fresh Fruit and Vegetables". The main objective of the database is to improve the safe production, harvesting, handling, storage, transport and marketing of fresh fruit and vegetables by providing access to reference information and information exchange among the chain actors, and tools for training, extension and awareness creation.
