​Wholesale Producers

Wholesale fruit and vegetable farms implement food safety practices to: 

  • Provide top-quality products to consumers
  • Meet buyer demands 
  • Meet the requirements of trade associations or marketing orders
  • Comply with federal and state regulations
  • Manage risks for their operations

If you are a wholesale producer, answer these questions as you develop and implement food safety practices:

  • What do my buyers require?
  • What trade or marketing association requirements apply to me?
  • What federal regulations apply to me?
  • What state and local regulations apply to me?
The answers to these questions will help to define the specifics of a food safety program for a particular farm.
