According to Ed, there's an evolution in standardization and implementation of standards in the fresh produce sector. "We have developed standards for electronic trade, to support buyers' and sellers' transactions, and data synchronization. We have also developed standards for product identification and for traceability. The next step in this respect is to develop standards for labelling fresh produce on a consumer level, pallet level and case level."

Members of the produce industry active within the Quebec marketplace are expected to meet certain requirements relative to language and labeling. Faced with the need to have an official translation of PLU nomenclature available for produce labeling, the Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) and Quebec Produce Marketing Association (QPMA) facilitated the translation of the PLU list to meet the needs of their respective memberships. The list translates the English produce PLU list into French.
