CDFA Gearing Up for Prop 12 Compliance


The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has posted assurances for the pork industry that it will assist in implementation of Proposition #12 declared constitutional by SCOTUS on may 11th.  The CDFA “will continue to focus on implementation of distributor registration requirements, accreditation of third-party certifiers and an outreach to provide technical assistance to businesses throughout the supply chain”.


Third-party certifiers are now in the process of being evaluated for authorization to certify compliance for egg, veal and pork producers.


Proposition #12 will take effect on July 1st and the CDFA is willing to discuss with industry representatives any issues relating to implementation.
