Government regulations are not new to producers of California leafy greens. The California Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement (LGMA) has been in place since 2007 as the best model to produce safe food because it establishes a culture of food safety on the farm. In January 2013 new federal laws overseeing fruits and vegetable food safety were issued as part of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
