USDA Color Standard

Color is one of the most important indicators of food and produce quality. Produce is graded in part based on color. Munsell USDA Color Standards, developed in collaboration with the USDA, help agriculture professionals determine when to pick produce and how to grade it based on color. Food processors also use color at various phases within the processing and packaging phases.

These handy color standards are easy to use and some standards come in washable formats so you get more use from each color standard. An approved supplier of USDA color standards, the Munsell laboratory delivers your standards in approximately one week.

Choose from any of the following USDA Color Standards:
