You will recognize Steve Grinstead and Roberta Cook among these distinguished volunteers.
The special insert is in this week’s edition of The Packer, and the December issues of Citrus & Vegetable and Produce Retailer.
It ran in the November print issues of the protein brands.
We also have an interactive website, 40under40ag.com, where you can read about this year’s program, see honoree profiles and make nominations for next year.
That’s right — we plan for this to be an annual program, so if you know someone who will be part of the worldwide food solution, and will be 40 or younger by July 30, 2014, please nominate him or her.
And please read the profiles of the young leaders from outside the produce industry.
They may deal with animals or live on ranches, but you will no doubt see that the passion they have for agriculture is so similar to that possessed by produce industry members.
