When the Produce Safety Rule goes into effect on January 26, most companies will have two years or less to become compliant with the new standards. Are you FSMA Ready? Whether you think you are or not, Western Growers urges members to register and participate in our upcoming Lunch and Learn Webinar on the Produce Safety Rule.

Child nutrition programs have been the source of contention for the past two years with fights occurring over everything from whole grain-rich requirements and sodium restrictions to a fresh produce mandate. Yesterday, the Senate Agriculture Committee Nutrition and Forestry Committee put those fights to rest -- at least for now -- when it favorably reported the Child Nutrition Integrity and Access Act of 2016 out of committee.

I am pleased to share a guest contribution from John Stenderup, Manager, Grower-Shipper Transportation Services for C.H. Robinson. Mr. Stenderup will focus his blog on what being a shipper of choice means to your company, and why it should matter to you.

As always, I’m available to answer any questions you might have and I will try to address them in my upcoming blog posts. You may contact me at 949.885.2269 or email me at TommyO@wga.com.
