The LDF Information Repository
AFSA is developing a knowledge and information repository consisting of legal research and advice obtained for AFSA members, which will benefit AFSA members and provide guidance in relation to, including but not limited to, relevant food safety standards and legal requirements for supply of small-scale farm produce and artisan food. Watch this space for more information coming soon.
