Clear and accurate labelling and signage help consumers make informed purchasing decisions. If you sell Ontario-grown fruit and vegetables at the farm gate, roadside stands, farmers’ markets or any other retail location, your signs and labels must comply with Regulation 378, Grades – Fruit and Vegetables under the Farm Products Grades and Sales Act, which regulates the grading, packing, marking and marketing of designated farm products.
OMAFRA’s new Retail Sign and Label Toolkit provides tips and easy-to-use, downloadable templates and instructions. For more information contact: 1-877-424-1300.
