Organic Produce Summit, an event dedicated to connecting buyers and suppliers in the organic fresh produce industry, announces retail registration is live. For its eighth annual event, the Organic Produce Summit will retain a similar format for attendees with a focus on forecasted industry trends for the 2024 year.
This year's Summit will include educational sessions, keynote presentations and a sold-out trade show floor showcasing solutions and innovations across grown food providers. OPS is carefully curated to reflect the needs of the market and brings together over 170 organic growers, shippers and processors from all corners of the business, providing a one-stop-shop for retailers and buyers in the organic and fresh produce industry.
Qualified retailers will receive complimentary registration and hotel stay. Retailers will also have the opportunity to attend a field tour of three of the largest and most progressive organic producers.
OPS and its digital media arm OPN Connect, which produces the annual State of Organic Produce Report, are now a part of the New Hope Network, a health and wellness event organizer and industry resource for natural products.
"We are excited to lean even further into the organic market, where we already have a strong presence and can expand opportunities and help make organic produce more accessible to grocery retailers and their shoppers across the United States,” said Carlotta Mast, senior vice president, New Hope Network. “This event connects organic produce growers and buyers and provides impactful education to this market. We look forward to continuing to add to their important industry objectives."
