The United Fresh Produce Association has released its 2015 Compensation & Benefits Report for the fresh produce industry.
Now in its third edition, the report showcases data from produce companies on a range of more than 30 professional industry positions including Sales & Marketing, Production & Operations, Quality Control & Assurance, Administration, Finance & Accounting, and Executives.
The final detailed research report which will allow produce companies to directly compare their salaries and benefits for full-time positions across multiple business sectors, as well as by ownership type (family, private, public), type of business, produce sales volume, number of full-time employees and geography. The report benchmarks continuing trends and important shifts against past editions from 2013 and 2011. The report was developed based on responses to a confidential survey, prepared by expert research firm Industry Insights, which measured compensation and benefits from U.S. and Canadian-based produce companies.
“Our business is constantly faced with challenges and the need for good information is intensifying,” said Jason Pounds, Treasurer/Secretary of Hardie’s Fresh Foods and Chairman of United Fresh’s Finance & Business Management Council. “This survey is a tremendous benefit for the industry. Being able to benchmark and analyze our company’s current pay and benefit structure against like companies is invaluable.”
