Public Policy Issues & Initiatives
United Fresh establishes a robust set of priority issues, with detailed policy positions and actions. 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.
Each year, the United Fresh Produce Association’s Board of Directors, Government Relations Council, association members, and industry partners evaluate and determine the overarching federal policy priorities for the upcoming year.
Our United Fresh Government Relations 2021 Work Plan is currently being finalized – coming out very soon – which comes off of a successful policy and regulatory agenda during the 116th Congress.
