As the entire world understandably operates “out of an abundance of caution” in response to COVID-19 Coronavirus, OnionBusiness.com is working to keep our readers abreast of produce industry events and their status for 2020.
We are compiling a list and will update it frequently with official statements from event organizers as well as links to their sites. Some events are still scheduled; some are postponed; some 2020 gatherings have been canceled. Please check with us and use the links we’re providing for the most up-to-date information.
Because many of us have weathered extreme circumstances over the years, we’re remaining optimistic this disruption will resolve sooner rather than later. We’re also relying on our abiding faith in God, turning to Him in this time of world uncertainty. And we’re reaching out to you as well with the hand of fellowship.
We’re all in this together.
