Like consumer goods, fresh produce is subject to Government regulations in the area of weights and measures.
In many cases, in our industry, fresh produce is pre-packed before reaching retail and therefore is subject to perspiration, which can lead to weight loss.
We have been working with MBIE over the last 12 months to create a set of guidelines for our industry, these guidelines will give fresh produce packers confidence that they fully understand the legal requirements. These guidelines have been reviewed by MBIE and are now with the United Fresh Executive for approval.
United Fresh will launch the guidelines for members at our upcoming AGM and Members Meeting, you can find out more and register here.
