WG has developed a website to facilitate changes to the Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement (LGMA)-approved Leafy Green Food Safety Guidelines. The interactive website now easily allows the public to participate in routine discussions and process amendments that will ensure continuous improvement of the leafy green food safety preventive practices.

In addition to simplifying the Leafy Green Food Safety Guidelines amendment process, the website also offers the following:

  • Master Calendar: Calendar that outlines the comment period and deadlines for issues related to agricultural water, field sanitation, soil amendments and concentrated animal feeding operations; entire amendment process at a glance
  • California LGMA Final Document: Commodity-specific food safety guidelines for the production and harvest of lettuce and leafy greens in California
  • Arizona LGMA Final Document: Commodity-specific food safety guidelines for the production and harvest of lettuce and leafy greens in Arizona
