PMA Offering Info on Proposed Food Safety Rules

As produce business grapple with last year’s passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and forthcoming proposed rules on produce production, food safety plans and imports from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Produce Marketing Association (PMA) is providing resources to enable industry stakeholders to influence and shape the final regulations.
