(May 13, PACKER WEB EXCLUSIVE) The Produce Marketing Association is sponsoring a Fresh Connections event May 29 in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The two-hour networking reception provides local industry members the opportunity to develop business relationships.

“The purpose of the Fresh Connection events is threefold,” said public relations director Julia Stewart. “First, it gives the PMA a chance to talk to members in their own backyards about information that’s not necessarily in the news, but is important to them. It also gives us a chance to hear from members firsthand about what’s on their mind and how we can work with them. The third thing is it gives members a chance to network with each other.”
