The supply of fresh produce involves a series of complex interrelated activities from the farm through to consumers.

One shared priority of the food supply chain is the timely provision of healthy and safe food to all customers, which meet all legal requirements and consumer expectations.

Consumers are increasingly aware of the elements that contribute to sustainable food production around the world. As such, to ensure that land remains productive and supports a wide biodiversity of fauna and flora, expert attention is needed to ensure inputs, including plant protection products, are used in an appropriate and sustainable way.
