PLU Sticker Ban Impact Letter

Across the globe, governments at all levels are examining the issue of plastics and the impact on the environment, which has led to various initiatives and, in some cases, legislation that seeks to find measures to mitigate this impact. Unfortunately, some countries have included the IFPS PLU stickers in bans without fully understanding the implications of doing so and the importance of this product identification scheme to the fresh produce sector. An impact letter was developed to help authorities understand these impacts and is available for use by industry around the globe. (PDF also available for download from the Sustainability tab.)
