FROM THE FIELDS: Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) Salad Quality

October 07, 2015


Markon inspectors have observed significant improvements in RSS iceberg and romaine-based salad items over the past week. Sporadic issues such as core material and minor discoloration are still present in some packs, but total defect percentages are low and shelf-life potential has stabilized. We are excited to report pack-out quality as being some of the best so far this summer, as the frequency and duration of above-average temperatures have waned. Quality is also benefitting from cooler nighttime temperatures. 


Effective immediately, the attached quality alert flyer will no longer be implemented in RSS iceberg and romaine-based salad items.


Attached are pictures of RSS items taken at a recent product evaluation.


Please contact your Markon customer support representative for more information.
