Nicholas Bertram, President and Chief Executive Officer of Flashfood, will give a keynote presentation titled “Feeding Families, Not Landfills.” He will cover Flashfood's collaborations with various retailers and grocers to address food waste—a $428 billion problem as over one-third of our nation’s food supply goes unsold or uneaten.

A panel titled "Strategies and Insights for Expanding Organic Fruit Sales” will feature panelists West Mathison, President and CEO of Stemilt; Scott Mabs, CEO of Homegrown Organic Farms; and Daniel Spivey, National Director of Produce - Fruit for Sprouts Farmers Market. The session will focus on ways fruit producers are seeking to build their organic fruit program, how other fruit commodities are growing as the berry category continues to dominate organic fruit sales, retail perspectives on opportunities, and obstacles in driving greater consumer sales and the future of the organic fruit industry. Tom Barnes, President of Category Partners, will moderate the panel.
