On the front lines of food safety
The New York Times
With piles of fresh strawberries beckoning consumers at markets and stores this season, an alliance of a major retailer, fruit growers and farm workers has begun a program to promote healthy produce and improve working conditions.

With the nut harvest just a few months away, farmers and employees responsible for cargo shipments recently gathered in Chico at a meeting organized by the Butte County Sheriff's Department and the Butte County Farm Bureau. There, they learned how to improve shipping procedures to avoid being victimized by cargo theft.
