United Fresh president and CEO Tom Stenzel attended the White House ceremony yesterday as President Joe Biden signed the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law.
“United Fresh has worked with the Administration and bipartisan Congressional leaders to pass a comprehensive infrastructure bill,” Stenzel said. “The new law will provide critical improvements to support the fresh produce supply chain, including roads, bridges, ports and vitally needed western state water infrastructure investment. We look forward to continuing to work with the Administration and Congress to ensure consumers have access to our safe, healthy and nutritious products. This law is a strong step in the right direction.”
