In the joint webinar, Hank Giclas, Western Growers Senior Vice President, Strategic Planning, Science and Technology joined James R. Gorny, Ph.D., Senior Advisor for Produce Safety with the FDA to discuss the mandatory federal standards for growing, harvesting, packing and holding produce for human consumption.
