The readership of the Pundit is broad and includes many executives in all perishable areas. However, because of the urgency of the food safety crisis in spinach, we’ve focused our attention there the last few days.
Though perhaps not directly relevant to readers in different areas, one of the purposes of the Pundit is to expose operators in all areas of the perishable food industry to things that are happening and ways of thinking outside their own specialty.
Food safety is a concern for all perishable food areas, and seeing how the produce industry is convulsed by such a problem is a lesson to all.
Still, the Pundit appreciates the patience of those less interested in this area and promises to get back to our regularly scheduled programming in the days to come.
