Why standardization of RPC labels?
Currently, grower/shipper/packers use their own label to identify produce, and other required information regarding the product, on the outside of the RPC when shipped to retailers. These labels vary in content and layout, making it difficult to quickly identify critical information.The RPC Label Standardization Guidelines were developed to improve the label in the following areas:
1. Location of Information 2. Completeness of Information 3. Functionality of Labels
The RPC poolers determined that creating an industry-wide label standard would address the issues noted above and also offer a label that could be easily and cost-effectively produced.
