The United Fresh Produce Association had a surprise waiting for the finalists of the Retail Produce Manager Awards and Produce Excellence in Foodservice Awards at the general session of United Fresh Live! on June 18.
The Packer's Tom Karst, Ashley Nickle and Amy Sowder share their first impressions of the United Fresh Live! trade show, the first of its kind for the produce industry, after day one of the virtual event.
In today’s COVID-19 pandemic-filled business world, adapting is crucial, according to chefs who shape the menus of restaurants, retirement communities, school systems, hotels and quick-service restaurants.
On a daily basis, The Packer sees a number of ways in which lives are being changed by the COVID-19 pandemic, from foodservice operators and the companies that supply them to farmers who’ve been forced to waste crops.
