Cantaloupe consumer confidence, demand is up
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Cantaloupe growers are hoping to finally move on from the troubles they had last year.
California cantaloupe growers say consumer confidence and demand have improved. Cantaloupe sales went down last year, after food-borne illnesses were linked to melons grown in Colorado.
This year, growers are taking more precautions to ensure their produce is safe. They will vote to start a new certification program that will include new handling standards and inspections.
