Good Practice Guides

At vegetablesWA we believe any practice that helps us achieve high yields of good quality produce, with minimal impact on the environment, is a good practice.

This Good Practice Guide, produced by vegetablesWA, forms part of a project funded by investment from the Australian and State Governments.

For further information on the Good Practice Guide contact us by phone: 9481 0834 or email: dominic.jenkin@vegetableswa.com.au.

Horticulture Code of Conduct

The Horticulture Code is a mandatory industry code prescribed under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010. Growers and traders trading in horticulture produce must comply with the Horticulture Code.

Traders can be either:

  • merchants – who purchase produce for the purpose of resale
  • agents – who sell produce on behalf of growers for a commission or fee.

The Code does not apply to:

  • nursery products – including trees, plants, seeds and flowers
  • retailers – businesses buying produce for retail sale
  • exporters – businesses buying the produce for export
  • processors – businesses buying the produce for processing.
