Fruits and Vegetables: Challenges/Emerging Issues in Today’s Food Supply
Tom Stenzel, CEO, United Fresh
Tom Stenzel covered the topic in detail and brought new insights concerning the current status, and future prospects, for the fresh fruits and produce industry in the U.S. and around the world. His presentation covered the size and scope of the industry but it went much further. Stenzel also covered the labor issues surrounding immigration reform, the scientific advances which will transform the industry and spent a lot of time on the kids of America and the way United Fresh is addressing the pressing nutritional needs of our next generation.
His PowerPoint does the best job of summarizing the key points: Philadelphia Ag Society 4-3-14
