Published on: Jul 23, 2013

United Fresh Produce Association, the produce industry's leading trade association, kicks off its Summer Fresh Impact Tour on July 29 at Highland, N.Y. The tour series covers 20 town halls in 15 states coast-to-coast, including 10 events in New York, Massachusetts, and Maine, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

The meetings give industry members a chance to share their perspectives on the issues and make business connections, notes United Fresh CEO Tom Stenzel. "The tours always allow us to engage in personal discussions about challenges facing our members, from labor and immigration, to food safety, to ways to increase produce consumption. At each stop along the way, we'll spotlight how United can help leverage the passion of individual members to make a difference for the greater industry."
