Membership details for the Safe Haven Farm Assurance Scheme.
Launched in 2005 by the British Potato Council (BPC), Safe Haven is a farm assurance scheme aimed at providing practical prevention against potato ring rot and safeguarding the future of Britain’s potato industry.
Working alongside a variety of partners, Safe Haven helps to identify and react to threats which jeopardise their members’ ability to produce quality potatoes.
There are a number of benefits to having your farm assured by Acoura Certification for Safe Haven.
Benefits can include:
- Enhances UK’s reputation as a quality potato producer
- Help in fighting blackleg, Dickeya spp, brown rot and ring rot as well as other non-indigenous pests and diseases
- Year-round technical guidance from Acoura staff
- Where possible Acoura will combine audits with similar farm assurance schemes, saving you time, hassle and money
It offers major advantages for all concerned and combined with existing seed classification schemes and phytosanitary controls, the scheme provides the best chance of achieving exclusion.
The Safe Haven audit is low in hassle but covers a number of important areas such as full seed stock traceability, safety, transportation; storage and use of machinery.
