United Fresh Women in Produce nomination period now open

Held each year in conjunction with the United Fresh Convention & Expo, Women in Produce recognizes the contributions of all women working in the produce industry, and selects one individual to share her personal experience. This year marks the 22nd anniversary of this event.

The honoree will be selected from nominations submitted across the industry. Nominations are evaluated based on the candidate’s industry involvement and contributions, as well as their inspiration to the industry.

New this year, Women in Produce will be the signature program at the Breakfast General Session on Wednesday, June 12, allowing for a broader attendee community to celebrate this year’s honoree and network with more industry colleagues.

“Women in Produce is one of the most inspirational events at our convention and I’m honored to have been present for each ceremony over the past 22 years,” said United Fresh President & CEO, Tom Stenzel. “Elevating the celebration to a breakfast general session shines a brighter light on the contributions from all women in our industry as the focus of this gathering. I invite everyone to join me at the breakfast in Chicago.”
