Providing FPC members with guidance

We offer advice to members on regulatory matters and technical issues, participating in government consultations and contributing to a number of stakeholder groups on behalf of the industry. Members will find the latest updates in the FPC Newsdesk.

FPC Produce Integrity Database - the smart way to manage your analysis

The FPC Produce Integrity Database collates anonymised data available from individual members and their suppliers, including analyses results from individual companies’ sampling and monitoring programmes.

Participating companies have access to their own data and analysis in a ‘one stop shop’, enabling them to:

  • interact with and manage suppliers
  • share information within the organisation and externally with suppliers and/or customers
  • benchmark against regulatory and customer standards
  • manage information more efficiently, reduce admin costs and monitor business performance.

FPC and participating companies will also have access to industry anonymised aggregated data, protecting the confidentiality of the importer and producer.

Shared industry data allows FPC to put any potential risk in perspective when it comes to regulatory scrutiny and in cases of investigations into alleged links between fresh produce and foodborne illness.

The database has been developed jointly by FPC and Food Experts, which brings ten years of expertise in this field, having developed sophisticated IT infrastructures to manage pesticide, microbiological and contaminant residue information in fresh produce.

Find out more about the database here and visit the database

FPC Technical Group

Our own Technical Group provides members with a vital forum for discussing a wide range of technical issues affecting all sectors of the industry. Regular contributions from regulatory bodies such as the Chemicals Regulation Directorate mean that delegates keep up-to-date with regulatory developments and food safety issues. The meetings offer a valuable opportunity for networking and are often combined with visits to locations of interest to the industry.


Plant Health Imports Task Force

FPC leads an industry task force which meets regularly with Fera to tackle issues such as resourcing and delays in inspections affecting both sea ports and airports.
