The Virtual Town Hall series presents current business challenges in fresh produce and floral, with expert insight and interactive attendee participation to work toward solutions.
October 12: Dry Sanitation in the Fresh Produce Industry
When thinking about dry sanitation for the food industry, we often think about practices that are related to food facilities producing low moisture foods (e.g., baked goods, nuts). The use of water in fruit and vegetable postharvest handling provides benefits, but also comes with the added cost and logistics of managing postharvest water quality and the greater risk for pathogens. Dry cleaning and sanitation practices remove water from this equation and can be a valuable option for any food producer. Join us for this Virtual Town Hall to learn from other sectors of the food industry, and how current research is shaping how these practices might be adapted to the produce industry.
October 19: Every Vote Counts: Expectations for the Midterm Election
With just days before Americans head to the polls, join us for this Virtual Town Hall to hear from Washington insiders on what races to watch, national issues that will and won’t matter when voters head to the polls, and other dynamics that are shaping the battle for control of Congress. We will then turn our focus internally to how this all is likely to impact the fresh produce industry.
