Retail buying organizations from across North America will meet with growers, shippers, processors and distributors in this intimate and energetic event devoted exclusively to organic fresh produce.
Following the sold-out inaugural OPS this past July, the 2017 Organic Produce Summit promises to be a can’t miss opportunity to see organic production first hand, learn from insightful and innovative presenters, and network with leaders on the buying and production segments of this growing industry.
