Fruits, Vegetables, and Eggs

Assessing the quality of agricultural products takes place both at the point of production and at the location offering products for retail sale. Products such as eggs, apples, potatoes, strawberries, and maple syrup are inspected for proper labeling and to determine the quality of the product. Agricultural Product Inspectors work with producers to help them make the best quality products possible and to grade and label them correctly.
