Oppy's Caitlin Klueber Shares SEPC Southern Exposure Plans
VANCOUVER, BC - The Southeast Produce Council’s (SEPC) Southern Exposure is right around the corner, and I for one am especially excited. Being my first foray into Southern hospitality, I can’t wait to shake hands and meet all the great produce people I write about! One such company is Oppy, whose Business Development Representative, Caitlin Klueber, clued me in on what it will be showcasing and why the intimate show is such a staple to the industry.
“First and foremost, we’re there to represent our growers,” Caitlin began. “We really look forward to SEPC every year because it has limited exhibitors. It’s typically a more intimate show where we have the time to connect and have meaningful conversations with our customers and other suppliers in the industry.”
Highlighting items such as Jazz™, Envy™, and Pacific Rose™ apples, Ocean Spray blueberries, Zespri® green and SunGold™ kiwifruit, and organic sweet bell and mini peppers from Divemex, Oppy is ready to highlight its strength as an importer and marketing company.
“Oppy is one of the largest importers of Chilean produce. The show is well represented with all facets of the industry being there, so it’s a good snapshot of what it’s like to do business in the Southeast,” Caitlin explained.
Oppy has further plans on the horizon after SEPC, sharing with me that the Envy Roadshow is moving up the East Coast through April. The company is also looking towards preparation for the New Zealand season of import apples and kiwifruit.
