Western Growers and Organic Produce Network Announce New Education Session for Organic Grower Summit 2021
MONTEREY, CA - Growth is a wonderful thing, but as expansion occurs, how does one scale their business to meet increased demand? Western Growers and the Organic Produce Network (OPN) are helping organic growers to answer this question and more at this year’s Organic Grower Summit 2021 (OGS), running December 1-2.
The associations recently announced OGS’ newest education session, which will provide grower perspectives on navigating marketplace changes. According to a release, the session will explore how organic growing operations can work to better fill the supply chain and offer products on a mass scale.
To lead the discussion, OGS tapped Rod Braga, President of Braga Fresh Family Farms as the session’s moderator. Sitting as panelists during the discussion will be Dick Peixoto, Owner, Lakeside Organic Gardens; Scott Mabs, CEO, Homegrown Organic Farms; and Jessica Hunter, Vice President of Operations, Del Rey Avocado.
Together, these leaders will share their thoughts on how their companies have successfully grown, the difficulties they have overcome in expanding, and what the future could hold in meeting increased shopper demand for organic fresh produce.
