Cathy Burns and Tom Stenzel, chief executives of Produce Marketing Association and United Fresh Produce Association, respectively, are sharing an important announcement Oct. 28 regarding the new organization formed by the merger of the two produce associations. The announcement will be broadcast live, beginning at noon PST, 3 p.m. EST, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7J9Bvep7W6A and will include members of the new group’s executive committee.
Cathy and Tom will be joined by Executive Committee members Bruce Taylor of Taylor Farms; Laura Himes of Walmart; Danny Dumas of Courchesne Larose USA Inc.; Dwight Ferguson of California Agricultural Leadership Foundation; Patrick Vizzone of ANZ Banking; and Martha Hilton of Wegman’s. These leaders were previously announced as the executive officers of the new association.
“This new association will not simply be a combination of our two great associations,” Stenzel said. “The new association will be a needed evolution for our industry. We have been hard at work with our industry leaders to create a new association that grows prosperity for all, and I am proud to join these officers to share our announcement with the industry and our members.”
The presentation will offer insight on how the new association will serve the industry, how to join the association, and highly anticipated details like the name of the new association. Available via the PMA and United Fresh websites, the presentation will allow all viewers to select a live subtitle translation in Spanish or Portuguese.
