PMA 2012 Fresh Summit

It is considered by many to be the show of the year. The one time that produce growers, packers, distributors, marketers, sellers, retailers and many others from around the country — and the world — come together to celebrate everything fresh from the ground. It is the Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit.

As always, 2012’s show was packed with new innovations and ideas, but in contrast to those passed, the show had record attendance. Here are a few highlights of what is coming to the industry.
