The Key to Temperature Management

According to Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ),between 1 January 2008 and 31 December 2017, FSANZ coordinated 626 recalls. The average number of recalls per year for the last 10 years is 63.

During the last 10 years, undeclared dairy (milk) has been the most common allergen related recall, accounting for 31% of all allergen related recalls. Peanut is the second most common type of allergen-related recalls, accounting for 20% in this category. Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella and E. coli are the three microorganisms most commonly associated with microbial food recalls in Australia. 

Dairy products are more commonly recalled due to concerns with process hygiene, indicated through E. coli testing, than other categories of food. Other products commonly recalled for E. coli include fresh sprouts, salads and some processed meat products.

Maintaining Consistent Wine storage conditions

According to Penfolds: "Poorly stored wines may not retain their original freshness and will most likely develop faster and less predictably than bottles that have enjoyed a constant, steady maturation process in a temperature-controlled cellar or wine cabinet. Wine is especially vulnerable to fluctuations in temperature. It is always best to transport wine in cool conditions and to store wine in an environment that minimises temperature variation."

5 Building and Construction Trends


One of the key ways to predict the direction of Australian growth in a sector is to look at the skills shortage lists for each state. Each year the Australian states research and release a list of skills shortages whereby the state would be willing to sponsor overseas workers in lieu of a lack of local skills. This not only reveals the level of local skills shortages but it also gives an interesting insight into the growth of particular industries including: Hospitality, Education, Tourism, Trades, Health, Construction, ICT, Automotive etc.
