Juice bars and chop shops are adding drama to the perimeter.

The initiative was honored as the Best International Initiative for Marketing Fresh Produce to Children in 2019 at the London Produce Show and Conference.

Reinvented experience will feature a new format, hot topics, networking, brand exposure and more.

Whitaker's "ability to translate complex safety issues into layman’s terms" are among his most respected qualities, Produce Marketing Association CEO Cathy Burns said.

The retailer designed the special event to help shoppers meet local growers.

Report concludes the shelf life of fresh produce such as strawberries, lettuce and salad mixes not only varies from one store to another but also within the same store location.

Led by items such as cauliflower, beets, beans and berries, fresh fruits and vegetables are filling up a bigger part of the retail foodservice plate.

Fyffes says the compostable and recyclable band, now in select markets, can reduce plastic consumption and waste.

The association executive will lead a new committee to identify trends, information, resources and best practices.
