Honor the Industry's Front Line
Wednesday, June 12 | 3:00 – 4:30 pm
A tradition at the United Fresh Convention & Expo, the Retail-Foodservice Celebration will honor 25 Retail Produce Manager Awards Winners and eight Produce Excellence in Foodservice Awards Winners who are advancing fresh produce consumption through innovation and creative presentation in retail outlets and foodservice venues across the country.
And, we said good-bye to Chicago and looked ahead to San Diego as we go California Dreaming at this new closing event honoring this year’s winners and sampling a taste of what’s to come in 2020!
Retail Produce Manager Awards
The United Fresh Retail Produce Manager Awards Program paid special recognition to produce managers on the front line in supermarkets who work every day to increase sales and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. This past June, attendees joined United Fresh and our program sponsor, Dole Food Company, Inc. in honoring 25 of the industry’s top retail produce managers for their commitment to fresh produce, innovative merchandising, community service, and customer satisfaction.
The nomination period for the 2020 Retail Produce Manager Awards program will be open this fall.
Produce Excellence in Foodservice Awards
The United Fresh Produce Excellence in Foodservice Awards Program, now in its twelfth year, pays special tribute to chefs and foodservice operations for excellence in the use of fresh produce in the culinary arts. Nominated chefs were offered an opportunity to further enhance their produce knowledge, engage with produce leaders and experience the newest fresh fruit and vegetable products during the United Fresh 2019 Convention & Expo where they were joined by thousands of attendees in Chicago this past June.
The nomination period for the 2020 Produce Excellence in Foodservice Awards program will be open this fall.
