The fresh fruit and vegetable industry is fast-paced and dynamic. There is little opportunity to take time out of a busy day for training and education. Recognizing the challenge of continuing education in our industry, CPMA develops, organizes and hosts webinars designed specifically for the produce industry.

There are diverse issues implicating different segments throughout the fresh fruit and vegetable supply chain, and CPMA's Education Committee works diligently to identify trends, topics and key issues and develop informative and dynamic webinars.

With the January 15th compliance date fast approaching, industry is focused on preparing for compliance where COVID-related impacts have not made this impossible. (As a reminder, additional flexibility relative to the compliance date is available for those whose inability to be compliant is a direct result of these impacts.)

In an industry as diverse as the fresh produce sector, implementation of the regulations varies in complexity from commodity to commodity and across the various types of consumer packaging resulting in multiple questions that CPMA’s team has been focused on answering over the past months; often with input from CFIA. This webinar will focus on the top questions received and offer the opportunity to pose additional questions during the webinar.

This webinar will include simultaneous translation and be available in English and French.

Recordings of many previous webinars are available on our members-only community website.
