Craig Slate and Ed Bertaud of The Fresh CrEd Podcast Hit the Road for International Fresh Produce Association Foodservice Conference



MISSION, TX - Just like Willie Nelson, The Fresh CrEd podcast is on the road again for its second “Live From” event at the International Fresh Produce Association (IFPA) Foodservice Conference in Monterey, California. Taking place July 29 from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. PST, listeners can tune in to hear Craig Slate, Chief Executive Officer of SunFed, and Ed Bertaud, Director of Retail Sales for IFCO, talk shop with fellow industry members.

Craig Slate, Chief Executive Officer, SunFed“I couldn’t have imagined where this idea would go when I first imagined it several years ago and put a plan into action, with my good friend Ed, to merge our industry and lifestyle passions into worthwhile listening,” said Slate. “Our first live broadcast at Viva Fresh showed us the excitement people had for the game day’ experience, not to mention the great content we glean, and we can’t wait to see what happens during our live foodservice broadcast.”

With their podcast studio located near the skybridge, attendees of the event can watch and listen as the duo highlights the power of fresh produce in shaping businesses, lives, and everyday experiences, a release explained.
