The Fresh Summit provides a platform to showcase Peruvian asparagus to the U.S. market and beyond. Lleras-Bush adds, “All PAIA members will be attending the PMA Fresh Summit, whether walking the show, exhibiting, participating in meetings and networking. We always have time to talk about the integrity and quality of Peruvian asparagus and the advances within our industry and we look forward to the interchange we can have with industry and our valued customers during this time.”  

The association will focus even greater efforts in 2017 on spreading the positive word to trade press, retailers, food service and consumers concerning the benefits of fresh asparagus. Through articles, advertisements, direct-communication, and trade show participation, the association anticipates increasing consumption and demand for fresh asparagus in 2017-18.
