Government Relations Council
United Fresh is the only produce organization that brings together all sectors of the industry to develop industry wide policy. Our Government Relations Council includes representatives from different commodity group, regions of the country, and both large and small companies throughout the produce supply chain.
The Council meets in person three times a year to discuss priorities, debate and drive industry consensus on policy positions, and share perspectives to develop grassroots and lobbying strategies. The Council also holds monthly conference calls to keep members up-to-date on policy developments and government relations initiatives.
The Council is chaired by Charles Wingard, Director of Field Operations, Walter P. Rawl & Sons, and includes more than 40 members, representing United Fresh’s overall membership. Click here to see a roster of Council members.
