No surprises in Wegmans food safety requirements

It’s 2013, not 1998, so Bill Pool, manager of food safety for the Rochester, N.Y.-based Wegmans Food Markets, is completely accurate when he told Produce Retailer, “I don’t think any grower ought to be shocked that a retailer lettuce.skull.nororequires documentation that they have practices and procedures in place. It doesn’t make a bit of difference if it’s an organic product or a conventional product. Growers have to have some kind of baseline, some kind of minimal standards across the board.”


Now advertise those food safety requirements at retail so consumers can choose.
