Buyers From Nations’ Largest School Districts to Convene at United Fresh 2016

May 01, 2016

More than 50 leading K-12 school foodservice directors from across the country will gather in Chicago during United Fresh 2016 for “The Produce Forum for School Success,” the only program designed to connect the produce industry with top school foodservice directors. This unique program will assist schools with the overall produce purchasing experience, advancing the dialogue about the products and services schools need most, and connects produce suppliers with K-12 school foodservice buyers at an exclusive networking reception, “The Fresh Festival for School Foodservice,” where produce leaders can showcase convenient fresh-cut options for foodservice, as well as unique single-serve fresh fruit and veggie snacks.
