Just arrived in Las Vegas for United Fresh 2009

RSS

Hi, everyone!

I just arrived in Las Vegas a couple of hours ago, and it's already looking like the United Fresh Produce Association has put together a great program for this year's show, at the Venetian, Sands Expo and Convention Center and Palazzo Hotel.

Venetian Hotel

There's a great looking educational program scheduled for tomorrow, and this year's expo will feature a 10,000 square foot "produce traceability demo center" where attendees can talk with suppliers and a couple of leading retailers about complying with the Produce Traceability Initiative, as well as other aspects of one of the key issues facing the industry today.

Also, word on the street is that United Fresh has a pretty exciting announcement to make at tomorrow's opening general session. So, check back tomorrow for breaking news from the show!
