These commodity manuals provide a detailed interpretation of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Regulations. They also present to the inspector diagrams of defects in order that they might be better able to accurately access damage in produce and effectively score them.

These electronic versions of the Fruit and Vegetable Inspection Manuals were prepared as reference documents for inspectors of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). However, the user should note that:

  • For a complete source of detailed documentation, these manuals should be consulted in conjunction with the appropriate legislation, reference works and other manuals.
  • Any images on this site are for reference purposes only and thus all inspectors will refer to the photos and diagrams in their commodity manuals for colour-reference and official scoring.
