USDA raisin rules changed

This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE USDA is adopting, as a final rule, without change, an interim rule that established final volume regulation percentages of 85% free and 15% reserve for the 2009-10 crop of Natural Seedless (NS) raisins covered under the Federal marketing order for California raisins. The Food Institute reports that the reserve percentage limits provides for raisins that handlers can market as free tonnage. Based on the 2009/10 crop year estimate of 275 000 (short tons), the 15% reserve would limit free tonnage to 233 750 natural condition tons (0.85 x the 275,000 ton crop).
