Check Out Your Opportunities At The ‘Sustainable Produce’ Summit

Sustainable business practices within the fresh produce industry will be the focus of the 2020 Sustainable Produce Summit.

The virtual event, Sept. 22-24, is presented by The Packer and Farm Journal’s Trust In Food, in partnership with Apeel Sciences. Registration and agenda information is at

The program will offer exclusive content centered on daily themes, including environmental practices, social sustainability and consumer insights. Powerful keynotes, interactive breakout sessions and actionable case studies are all on the agenda. An intimate and focused virtual exhibit hall will deliver educational opportunities for attendees and exhibitors with online networking features available throughout the event.

“We believe that true sustainability can only be reached as a community-it takes all of us,” said Matt Morgan, executive vice president of produce for Farm Journal. “To advance that goal, we’re excited to deliver this new virtual event, which will bring together top thought leaders and changemakers in this space, while also meeting the demands of companies and customers, throughout the supply chain, who are asking for more guidance and collaboration around sustainable business practices.”

A program highlight will be the presentation of data and analysis from a recent study commissioned by The Packer and Trust In Food that polled growers, retailers and consumers about their perspectives and practices related to sustainability.

“In partnership with leaders across the supply chain, we are realizing the environmental, social and business benefits of applying nature’s solutions to solve food waste,” said Jason De Turris, vice president of brand marketing at Apeel. “We’re excited to partner with The Packer and Trust In Food to educate the growing community of sustainability innovators. The more we understand about how we use natural resources, the more power we will have in making the right decisions for our food system and beyond.”

The Sustainable Produce Summit will provide sponsors a platform to position their companies and products as solutions to establish or expand sustainable business practices and will deliver valuable exposure before, during and after the event.
