Revised Mycotoxin HACCP Guide for Australian Maize

The Maize Association of Australia recently commissioned the development of protocols for the management of mycotoxins.

The purpose was to enhance the reputation for quality of Australian maize and to better meet the needs of end users.

 

A summary is as follows.

  1. Determine requirements of end-users, or importers and the importing country.
     
  2. Identify maize from crops with low risk of aflatoxin / other mycotoxins.
     
  3. Check that crop is harvested and stored in good conditions.
     
  4. Specify and monitor transport / shipping conditions.
     
  5. Oversee protocol for handover of shipment to client
