Leafy Greens Transition Resources

Western Growers urges all leafy greens industry stakeholders to remain vigilant during this current transition period from California’s Central Coast to Yuma, Arizona. To provide support during this critical time, Western Growers and the Arizona and California LGMAs hosted a webinar series covering this topic back in 2020. This year, Western Growers continues collaborating with both entities and is working to provide resources and information.

Resources are available to keep food safety front and center, including key webinar takeaways, an infographic displaying important practices to consider during the transition and the Good Neighbor Compost Handling guidance document.

As you know, it is vital to detect food safety risks during the transition and quickly move to adopt known best practices. If you have any questions or comments, please reach out to the Western Growers Science team at [email protected].
