Survey Request on Export Shipments to Canada

With the enactment of the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations, a new provision that requires labeling consumer prepackaged fresh fruits and vegetables with a lot number will be required.

The Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) has been in discussion with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) regarding the potential impacts to business, including U.S. exporters, on this new requirement.

To assist CPMA, a partner with whom Western Growers has worked closely with over many years, we are encouraging you to please take a moment and complete this very brief survey. The data collected will assist CPMA in their further discussions with CFIA in an effort to reach a resolution to this costly regulation.
