Passion for Produce participants announced

The Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) is proud to announce the participants for the 2018 Passion for Produce (PFP) Program in Vancouver. As an added value to membership, PFP was created by the CPMA in 2010 to provide rising stars in the produce industry the opportunity to accelerate their professional development through a unique mentoring experience at the Annual Convention and Trade Show.

“We are thrilled to have so many rising stars from some of the leading companies within our industry join us in Vancouver this year,” said Ron Lemaire, President, CPMA. “With our largest program to date, PFP continues to thrive on great programming, networking opportunities, and amazing participation from senior industry leaders participating in mentorship activities.”

Over the three day CPMA Convention and Trade Show, PFP candidates connect with industry leaders/mentors, participate in off-site tours, interactive sessions, networking events, and more to learn all they can about the fresh produce industry in Canada. PFP candidates gain knowledge through first-hand experiences, discussions, and networking that empowers them to return to work with an enriched understanding and renewed enthusiasm for the produce industry. Candidates develop lasting relationships with mentors, fellow candidates, and other industry leaders that will guide them through their careers.
