Food safety
We're still
trying to
get that
message out
to the retail
industry
to include
food safety
when you're
talking
to your
Produce
BY ANDY NELSON
WHILE FOOD SAFETY-RELATED OUTBREAKS continue to cause
headaches for the fresh produce industry, experts are optimistic that
increased awareness all along the supply chain will continue to mitigate
some outbreaks and prevent others.
The safety of fresh fruits and vegetables sold at grocery retail has
always been a key priority for Arlington, Va.-based FMI - The Food
Industry Association, said Hilary Thesmar, the group's chief food and
product safety officer and senior vice president for food safety.
FMI breaks its food safety programming for produce into three
categories: supply chain, store level, and consumer education.
On the supply side, the organization is working very closely with
producers of commodities that have had food safety-related outbreaks.
Leafy greens has been a major focus in recent years, but FMI has also

worked with other associations, academics and suppliers on the safety
of red onions and papayas, among others, following recent outbreaks.
While there haven't been any major breakthroughs on the prevention
side, Thesmar has been pleased with the increased awareness industrywide.
More and more people all along the supply chain are aware that,
as recent FDA reports have confirmed, contamination of fresh produce
at the grower level comes to either water or proximity of animals.
" We're still trying to get that message out to the retail industry to
include food safety when you're talking to your suppliers, " she said.
And as the embrace of technology expands " exponentially, " Thesmar
said, blockchain and other technologies that aid in the prevention of
produce-related food safety outbreaks are becoming more mainstream
and accepted by retailers. That said, Thesmar stressed that blockchain
