Bilateral labeling guide jointly issued

The United Fresh Produce Association and the Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) have jointly released The USA-Canada Bilateral Labeling Guide.

This guide is a user-friendly tool for those involved in the design of fresh produce labeling and packaging to be shipped and distributed in the United States and/or Canada, including Quebec. It includes consumer packaging, master containers (RPC and shipping containers), detailed graphics for requirements for labeling fresh-cut produce, plus an extensive list of US and Canadian resources.

“We are proud of our work with the Canadian Produce Marketing Association and to have created this valuable resource on fresh produce packaging and labeling,” said Dan Vaché, United Fresh vice-president of supply chain management. “This guide will be extremely helpful in the day-to-day operations of our members in the United States and Canada.”

Jane Proctor, vice-president–policy and issue management for CPMA, said, “CPMA believes strongly in collaboration to provide the best outcomes for the industry and welcomed the opportunity to work with United to deliver this new resource for industry.”

This guide is available free of charge for all United Fresh members and CPMA members. For answers to questions about the guide, contact Vaché at 425-629-6271 or Proctor at 613-226-4187.
