One of the noted events held within the larger exposition was United Fresh’s Global Reception. As Jeff Oberman, Vice President of Trade Relations for United Fresh, took the time to share with me, the gathering was ripe with global good cheer and ideal networking instances.

“In the midst of this international gathering, attendees of the United Fresh Global Reception enjoyed catching up with old friends and business associates,” Jeff tells me. “Throughout the show, our staff team enjoyed fostering new partnerships and solutions between our member companies in attendance.”

Over 150 United Fresh members gathered for the annual reception, providing a relaxing break at the end of the day for members from around global supply chain to mingle and meet.
