Don’t cry nanny state on melon guidelines

How many growers will resent the guidelines? Will smaller operations feel these guidelines don’t apply to their operations?

The Magic Eight Ball says “future uncertain,” and so does Hank Giclas, vice president of Irvine, Calif.-based Western Growers, who told The Packer last week that more federal rules and guidelines won’t help.

“There is no shortage of guidance out there, and still we see instances of people who aren’t following that,” Giclas said.

It isn’t nanny state regulation.

It is what has to be done to be in the business.
