Local Foods - Understanding Packaging & Specifications for Wholesale Markets (WEBINAR)

September 4, 10-11:30 am


Description:  Are you interested in connecting to, or assisting farm clients connect to, new wholesale markets, such as food service and retail grocers? On this webinar, a wholesale produce buying expert will: 1) guide attendees through pack size requirements, quality and specifications, 2) explain how and why specifications may differ in wholesale markets, and 3) explain how a grower may better communicate with a buyer. Another expert will focus on labeling requirements for producers selling to retail grocers, specifically sharing how to guide a grower in acquiring PLU/UPC codes - an opportunity for more successfully branding and marketing their product in these markets.
