An Update on Jeff Honey, Director of Inspections
Jeff will be hosting a series of Quality Control seminars on October 31, November 7, and November 14, 2018.
The purpose of the seminars is to familiarize participants with the most efficient way to receive and check a load of produce on arrival to determine quality. Topics to be covered include: determining the quality and condition upon arrival, determining if an inspection on the load is warranted and reviewing the requirements of the federal inspection program and other independent inspection services.
