Milford, Connecticut-In an effort to help reduce the risk of food-borne illness, Subway Restaurants has rolled out its Gold Standard Produce Program for fresh lettuce, tomatoes and green peppers. The company's research and development department, in conjunction with the franchisee-owned Independent Purchasing Cooperative, has organized a network of processors, packers and repackers who use facilities that can produce or source fresh produce to the chain's written specifications.
