CHICAGO — Fresh produce-related companies provided more than their share of news at a historic All Things Organic Conference & Trade Show June 16-18 at McCormick Place.
At the event highlighted by the monumental agreement between the U.S. and Canada to continue the free flow of organic trade in North America, plenty of companies with fresh produce tie-ins unveiled their own new products and plans to not only maintain the success of organics, but continue its growth despite tough times.
The event also proved historic for The Packer, marking the first time using Twitter to help us disseminate headlines, blurbs and links to full stories to our rapidly increasing online audience.
