United Fresh, CGA Prep Webinar on Proposed FSMA Rules
United Fresh and the California Grocers Association (CGA) Education Foundation are working together to present a webinar outlining the potential impact of the proposed Produce Safety Rule on retailers’ procurement and store operations, as well as fresh produce suppliers.
United’s David Gombas, SVP of food safety and technology, and Jeff Oberman, VP of trade relations, will lead the educational event.
“Retailers will definitely feel the effects of the Produce Rule, especially if the small farm amendment remains in the final version,” noted Gombas. “The industry is counting on retailers to hold suppliers to strict standards of implementing the rules to ensure safe, quality products are delivered to the consumers regardless of from what size operation they originate.”
The March 20 session will also provide an update on the work being done by United’s Produce Rule and Preventive Control Rule working groups.
The webinar is free to United Fresh and CGA members, and $50 for non-members. Registration is available online. For more information, contact Jeff Oberman at 831-600-8922.
