Sponsored by Dole Food Company, the program is now in its 15th year and pays special recognition to produce managers on the front line in supermarkets working every day to increase sales and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Twenty-five award winners, along with their corporate produce directors, will receive complimentary airfare, hotel accommodations and registration to United Fresh 2019, taking place June 10-12, 2019 in Chicago.
Since the program’s inception, over 300 produce managers from over 100 different retail banners have been honoured.
