Walmart gives money-back guarantee on fresh produce

Monday, June 03, 2013

Walmart is offering a money-back guarantee on the fresh produce it sells.

Under a new policy, Walmart customers who are not satisfied with the fruits and vegetables they purchase can bring back their receipt for a full refund.

Walmart says the policy will help ensure the quality of its produce.

The company has been struggling to keep its produce aisles fresh, and is addressing concerns about the bananas, lettuce and other produce it sells.

Other changes include delivering produce from farms to store shelves more quickly by purchasing fruits and vegetables directly from local growers. It's also conducting independent weekly checks of the produce aisles at its more than 3,400 Supercenters, Neighborhood Markets and Express stores.

Walmart has also launched a produce training program for 70,000 associates, including store managers, that teaches them how to better handle fruits and vegetables.
