General Session Breakfast
September 18, 2019 | 8:00-9:30 am
At the United Fresh Washington Conference, hear U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue address the produce industry’s most pressing issues, from immigration reform and the need for a stable, legal workforce, to expanding fresh produce access for all Americans. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear key insights straight from the United States Department of Agriculture, during the General Session Breakfast.
Uniquely qualified as a former farmer, agribusinessman, veterinarian, state legislator, and governor of Georgia, Secretary Perdue became the 31st United States Secretary of Agriculture on April 25, 2017. As the product of Georgia, a state where agriculture is the leading economic driver, Perdue recognizes that agriculture is an issue and industry which cuts across political party boundaries. He recognizes that the size, scope, and diversity of America’s agricultural sector requires reaching across the aisle so that partisanship doesn’t get in the way of good solutions for American farmers, ranchers, and consumers.
