Last Chance to Provide Input on LGMA Changes

There is only one webinar left to learn about and provide input on the potential changes to the Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement (LGMA)-approved food safety metrics. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, June 7, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PDT.

In May, Western Growers (WG) hosted a series of in-person listening sessions to provide interested parties and signatories of either the California or Arizona LGMAs with an opportunity to comment on possible changes to the LGMA-recognized metrics and audit checklist. All in-person listening sessions have concluded. A webinar on May 19 was also hosted to accommodate those who could not attend one of these sessions.

WG has been leading an effort to release a fully-revised version of the LGMA-approved metrics. This effort goes beyond the current annual LGMA-approved metrics amendment process managed by WG. This initiative incorporates peer-reviewed research presented at the Center of Produce Safety Symposiums, as well as input from an independent expert review panel, the Harmonized Food Safety Standard and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Produce Safety Rule. As a result, a revised LGMA audit checklist could be in place later this year. 

Don’t miss this opportunity and join us for the last listening session. The webinar is offered at no cost and is open to the public to tune in.
