"Produce is a passion I never knew I had!" said Shannon Arias,
Produce Distribution Manager for Chick-fil-A, Inc. and
a new member of the United Fresh Retail-Foodservice Board.
A life-long resident of Georgia, Shannon is the pride of Newnan,
about 40 miles southwest of Atlanta, where she learned about
fruits and vegetables from her grandfather 'PaPaw' who brought
her regularly to the Atlanta Farmers Market to purchase
tomatoes and okra. Her favorite time with PaPaw was learning
how to ride his tractors and operate his antique sawmill and,
of course, gardening.
