2020 Strategic Initiatives

United Fresh establishes a list of priority issues each year, with detailed policy positions for our industry. With such a diverse industry, achieving consensus across all of produce is a challenge. But, United Fresh is committed to an open and transparent policy process that includes the views of all sectors of our industry. 

Our policy development process begins with the Government Relations Council, which develops a draft policy agenda each fall in anticipation of the coming Congressional calendar. Then, in January, the Board of Directors reviews the proposed priorities and policies, giving final approval to our agenda each year.

Our United Fresh Government Relations Work Plan for 2020 comes off of a successful policy and regulatory agenda during the 115th Congress.
