Peruvian Asparagus Importer's Association announces Co-Chairmen

The Peruvian Asparagus Importers Association (PAIA) has announced the recent election of the new association Chairmen for the 2016-2017 Term.

Elected by a member vote at the October 2015 meeting, re-elected were Co-Chair Walter Yager of Alpine Fresh, Miami, Florida and newly elected Co-Chair Jay Rodriguez, of Crystal Valley Foods, Miami, Florida.

The Peruvian Asparagus Importers Association would like to welcome these very accomplished Chairmen to their assignments. “Our Chairmen are commissioned to help guide the association in our efforts to facilitate and further develop asparagus trade, address industry or category matters and assist in evolving the asparagus category as a whole,” says Priscilla Lleras-Bush, Coordinator for the Peruvian Asparagus Importers Association.

As an association, PAIA collectively works on all issues affecting the industry and has shared goals to advance the trade and succeed in importing the freshest products into the United States as well as meet consumer demand with the freshest supply of Peruvian Asparagus. This benefits all who are involved from the grower to the retailer and to the end consumer.

The association will focus even greater efforts in 2016 on spreading the positive word to trade press, supermarkets 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 2016/2017.
