LIVE FROM THE FIELDS: Commodity & Value-Added Romaine

March 20, 2019

Please click here to view a Markon Live from the Fields video about quality improvements in commodity and value-added romaine items.

  • Last February’s freezing temperatures caused quality challenges in the Arizona/California desert growing region that were difficult to reduce or eliminate
  • The attached quality alert flyers were distributed in select Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) cases to communicate the industry-wide problems
    • Romaine quality has improved significantly over the past several days
    • The flyers will now be removed from all RSS items
  • Markon inspectors continue to monitor quality and will update as needed


Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
