Co-Owners of GoldenSun Insights Randy Riley and Jason Fuller Headline Purdue Food and Agribusiness Executive Summit; Betty Jones-Bliss Comments
BATAVIA, OH - GoldenSun Insights Co-Owners Randy Riley and Jason Fuller are speaking at the Purdue Food and Agribusiness Executive Summit this week, taking place September 28-30, to discuss “Gaining Alignment in the Produce Value Chain” post-pandemic. Additional players from across the supply chain will also join them for the discussion to highlight our industry’s rising opportunities.
“Misalignment in the produce value chain is an important topic that affects our industry,” Randy told me in a recent interview. “Predicting consumer needs, getting production closer to the consumer, and managing production curves are all facets in bridging the gap.”
Jason also weighed in as the event gets underway.
“We look forward to three days of engaging dialogue between academic thought leaders and leaders in the food and agribusiness industry,” he explained.
As explained by Betty Jones-Bliss, Associate Director, Center for Food and Agricultural Business at Purdue University, the summit brings together senior industry professionals to explore the challenges facing the food and agribusiness industry.
Summit participants will explore the top challenges faced today and examine options for a strategic response. Engagement with industry and academic thought leaders will allow attendees to brainstorm new strategies and leave invigorated to take action, Betty added.
“In the lineup of speakers, Fuller and Riley will address challenges, opportunities, consumer trends, and new technologies in the fresh produce market,” said Betty. “As this marketplace tackles pressure on several fronts, they will engage participants in a discussion around gaining alignment in the produce value chain. They will bring their deep understanding of what drives retail produce operations, which leads to crafting solutions that elevate products and services beyond commodities to value-added positioning for retailers. Attendees will experience the cross-pollination of ideas across industry segments, as well as an unprecedented opportunity to build personal and professional relationships.”
