The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services received federal grant funding in 2016 to establish a Produce Safety Program within the Office of Dairy and Foods. This new regulatory program will work to address the growing, packing, holding and dissemination of produce grown on farms and will encourage the safe production of fruits and vegetables and promote understanding and compliance with the FDA Produce Safety Rule and state legislation.
