This questions and answer document, originally drafted by PMA and United Fresh, has been updated as an outcome of the Romaine Task Force labeling workgroup, comprised of a cross-section of the fresh produce industry that was charged with providing industry guidance for this voluntary program. As the industry continues to gather experience implementing provenance labeling, this information may be updated.
Mission: To provide consumers easy access to information of growing regions and harvest dates associated with romaine products.
Vision: This is an interim step until better traceback mechanisms are in place.
As the use of these labels begin, we expect that additional questions will arise, and/or best practices might be adjusted as participants gain experience. We will update the current FAQ’s and make additions as we move forward. Please free to contact us with additional questions as appropriate.
