Opportunities in Phytosanitary Irradiation for Fresh Produce Workshop

March 25-26, 2015

Offered by USDA-APHIS and Chapman University, the fifth annual "Opportunities in Phytosanitary Irradiation for Fresh Produce Workshop" will take place March 25-26, 2015 at Chapman University in Orange, CA. Over the past five years Chapman University has partnered with U.S. produce industries and USDA APHIS PPQ to conduct quality studies on a variety of fresh fruit. This project is funded by a USDA FAS Technical Assistance for Specialty Crops Grant and is designed specifically to assist in developing export markets for U.S. commodities. This workshop is provided to participants at no charge.

The meeting will include: 

  • Presentation of APHIS trade initiatives
  • Trade potential for irradiated produce
  • Results of research on quality of fruit and effects on invasive species
  • Grocery industry success stories
