Final Thoughts

April 23, 2010

The Global Conference on Produce Sustainability will wrap up soon, and following evening reception the attendees will head back to their respective places of business.

This United Fresh offered so many great opportunities to learn new things about the industry – whether through the educational sessions, general sessions or conference. I hope you”ll take what you learned back and use it to innovate your business.

The mood at this show was upbeat – it appears that people are starting to come out of the economic funk that has been going around, and that”s a good sign for buyers and processors.

I”d like to thank the sponsors of the Fresh Cut blog and Twitter feed – Key Technology, Northern Star Engineered Products, Jarvis, Reyco, Heinzen Manufacturing International and FTNON USA. I had the chance to meet with them all to see their new products, and I hope you did too.

Next year”s show is moving to New Orleans, so I”ll look forward to seeing the industry get back together again for another great show in the Big Easy May 2-4.
