When customers want to learn more about meat and produce while shopping, they have two new resources to help them. 

The free MyMeatUp app, created by the North American Meat Institute, offers an interactive guide to beef, pork, lamb, and veal. The “cuts of meat feature” visually displays the most common retail cuts along with corresponding explanations, recipe ideas, cooking methods, and other information meant to help demystify meat purchases.

For shoppers concerned about produce safety, the Alliance for Food and Farming created safefruitsandveggies.com, a science-based site covering topics like washing produce, pesticide use, health and nutrition, and safety standards.
