WASHINGTON, DC - As the import/export relationship between the United States and Canada continues to grow and evolve, the United Fresh Produce Association and the Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) have once again joined forces to release the second edition of the USA/Canada Labeling Guide. The vital tool will support the industry's understanding of differences and similarities between labeling compliance in both countries, contributing to their success.

Miriam Wolk, Vice President of Member Services, United Fresh Produce Association“We know that members in the U.S. and Canada rely heavily on this guidance and anticipate that the revision will be a useful resource,” commented Miriam Wolk, United Fresh’s Vice President, Member Services.

Originally established to showcase the significant changes to both the U.S. and Canadian regulatory and business requirements, the guide was designed to be the first point of reference for companies shipping to one or both markets.
