Developed by the United Fresh Produce Association and Canadian Produce Marketing Association, the Second Edition of the USA/Canada Labeling Guide is designed to be a user-friendly tool for use by those involved in the design of fresh produce labelling and packaging to be shipped and distributed in the U.S. and/or Canada, including Quebec, for both consumer prepackaged products and cases/shipping containers (including reusable plastic containers).

The Guide discusses and provides some examples with detailed graphics, of the requirements for labelling fresh-cut produce to be entered into commerce in both Canada and the U.S.A. The second edition reflects changes such as the addition of the PTI Harmonized Case Label, changes in product identification, new U.S. GMO labelling requirements, changes to nutrition labelling in Canada, and the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations requirements, including new traceability requirements for prepackaged fresh fruits and vegetables. Information is available for both consumer items and case/shipping containers of fresh fruits and vegetables.
