    United Fresh Produce Association is now accepting nominations to help select an honoree to speak at the annual reception honoring Women in Produce, Wednesday, May 15, at United Fresh 2013 in San Diego.

    “It is an honor to count such thought-leaders, role models and inspiring innovators among us,” said Tom Stenzel, United Fresh president/CEO. “It is always a highlight of the convention to celebrate the contributions of women who guide the industry.”

I was honored when I was given the opportunity to share my own story with the industry and I know that we will all continue to be inspired by women who receive this award in years to come.”
