Farmerís Best exhibits for 21st year at Fresh Summit

Farmerís Best is set to exhibit at the Produce Marketing Association (PMA) Fresh Summit Conference and Expo for the 21st consecutive year. This yearís trade show will take place at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

The Farmerís Best team will be busy discussing a number of topics with current and potential clients during the event. Highlights include Farmerís Best products, its four core commitments of food safety, quality, reliability and sustainability, its social responsibility programs and major land expansion in San Luis PotosŪ. 

This expansion is certainly the biggest news of 2017 for the 51-year old company. After years of seasonally-based supply, San Luis PotosŪ improvements increased the availability of three key Farmerís Best products: cucumbers, Roma tomatoes and green bell peppers.

The larger growing operations and practices now allow for growing and distribution of all three in-demand products throughout the summer season as well as its traditional winter production. Bell pepper production has also improved with upgraded technology like a new sorting machine.

Farmerís Best team members, including Tarriba along with vice president of sales and marketing Steve Yubeta and others, will be available to greet attendees at booth number 1057 during PMA Fresh Summit.
