The New York Produce Show and Conference

I have the honor of participating in the New York Produce Show and taking four JWU Culinary-Foodservice Management students with me to participate in the show.  A special thank you goes out to the Perishable Pundit Jim Prevor  for the invitation. 

During the show I plan on blogging about the days events and as always provide you with plenty of pictures.

“Celebrating Fresh” is the theme of this year’s conference, and there’s no better way to start celebrating than to be in New York City on November 7-9, 2011.

About The New York Produce Show and Conference
The Eastern Produce Council and PRODUCE BUSINESS magazine have once again joined forces to present an exciting world-class event for the region. The three-day event will include networking opportunities, a trade show of over 300 booths, retail “thought-leader” panel hosted by Perishable Pundit Jim Prevor, micro-sessions and tours of the regional industry, including the Hunts Point Market, the new Philadelphia Market and local retailers, distributors and restaurants. The program also includes an outreach to students and faculty at regional universities as well as distinguished culinary schools; a press program involving print, radio, TV and online outlets, plus a “Consumer Influencer” program reaching out to bloggers, consumer editors and those working with all forms of social media.


New this year are two mini conferences for those who wish to come early and/or stay later. On Monday, November 7, the Global Trade Symposium will offer attendees the latest insights on produce importing and exporting to and from the Northeast Region. On Wednesday, November 9, the New York Produce Show Foodservice Forum will cover produce purchasing, practices and partnerships in the Northeast.
