United Fresh Produce Sets Meeting

United Fresh Produce Sets Meeting
Registration for conference is now open.

United Fresh Produce Association will hold its Washington Public Policy Conference September 14-16. Several lawmakers are scheduled to speak including what the association calls the architect of the Obama Administration's "buy local" movement, Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Kathleen Merrigan.

United Fresh President Tom Stenzel says the produce industry is in a very unique position.  We are currently invested in the outcomes of many important discussions on Capitol Hill; from locally-grown, energy, climate change and food safety, to labor, immigration and child nutrition.

Registration is now open. More information on the 2010 Washington Public Policy Conference may be found by visiting
