United Fresh conducting California tour stops in early March

United Fresh will kick off a week-long “All Roads Lead to San Diego” tour on Monday, March 2 with town hall events and member visits throughout California.

united-fresh-produceMembers will hear updates on immigration, food safety, international trade and nutrition initiatives from United Fresh executive staff and have the opportunity to share their perspectives on the issues. The tour concludes on Friday, March 6 with an industry reception at the San Diego Convention Center, home of United Fresh 2020 Convention & Expo, June 16-19.

“With our convention returning to California this year, we wanted to take this opportunity to meet with our members throughout the state,” said Tom Stenzel, United Fresh President & CEO. “Town Hall events like these allow us to engage in personal discussions about challenges facing our members, and to spotlight how United Fresh can help leverage the passion of individual members to make a difference for the greater industry.”
