"Question: What is meant by 'ready-to-eat'?
Ready-to-eat produce is sold for immediate consumption without further peeling, trimming, washing or cooking by the consumer. These preparation steps are performed by the processor to add convenience and quality. Some examples of fresh produce that may be ready-to-eat include pre-cut lettuce, spinach, cut fruits like melon, pineapple, fruit salad and peeled carrots, broccoli florets and cauliflower pieces."
See also the paragraph which follows.
"Perceived Problem: Fruits and vegetables take too long to prepare.
* Take advantage of grocery store salad bars, which offer ready-to-eat raw vegetables and fruits"
I was hoping for something equally concise because it's a PowerPoint presentation (limited space). I don't think this people this is directed at will be food-industry experts. I've got both "4th" and "5th", so the explanation gets a bit lengthy.
