Legislative & Regulatory Activity

United Fresh meets with members of Congress and regulatory officials frequently to advance our nutrition policy goals to increase consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. We also testify before Congressional hearings, host Congressional briefings, submit comments on regulatory matters, and provide background information to help government officials understand how to shape fruit and vegetable nutrition policy and the needs of our industry.

To ensure effective implementation of the new fruit and vegetable regulations, United Fresh collaborates with USDA and the Child Nutrition Institute’s “Team Up For School Nutrition Success.”  

Our most recent testimony and regulatory comments are included below:
