Definition of a Qualified End User:
User A qualified end-user is either: (1) the consumer of the food or (2) a restaurant or retail food establishment that is located in the same state or the same Indian reservation as the farm or not more than 275 miles away. Instead, these farms are required to include their name and complete business address either on the label of the produce that would otherwise be covered (if a label is required under the FD&C Act and its implementing regulations) or to display the same information at the point-of-purchase. These farms are also required to establish and keep certain documentation (See § 112.7).
Safe Produce Indiana has also created several short videos about FSMA regulations compliance. They include the following:
