PMA, a global trade organization representing companies from every

food production with fewer resources while bolstering confidence in the
safety of fresh fruits and vegetables. In particular, the Campaign funds
critical research and education delivered by dozens of research-based
organizations, including the Center for Produce Safety (CPS). CPS
focuses on prevention research that delivers real-world solutions
applicable to the entire produce supply chain.
