Audits Benchmarking Matrix
 
This Audits Benchmarking Matrix was developed by members of the United Fresh Produce Association (United Fresh) Food Safety & Technology Council for use by the entire Produce Industry supply chain, i.e., growers, shippers, processors, retailers, foodservice and other buyers.
