Allen Lund's Andy Shoemaker Details Business Opportunities at PMA Fresh Summit 2019
ANAHEIM, CA - There was much to marvel over on the PMA Fresh Summit showroom floor, but the best part of the expo is always the people you run into. With the best of the produce world in attendance, there is no shortage of interesting folks to hobnob with. As I wandered the maze of booths I was lucky enough to bump into Andy Shoemaker, Director of Perishable Logistics for the Allen Lund Company, who reminisced about his decades of Fresh Summit expos.
“I’ve been coming to Fresh Summit for 25-plus years, and it has been always a beneficial venue for solidifying relationships and building new ones,” he told me.
Andy brings more than 25 years of industry knowledge to his recent role with Allen Lund. He has primarily been with the grower/shipper/distributor end of the business, and noted it wasn’t just the company’s formidable industry presence that attracted him to the team.
“What attracted me to the Allen Lund Company was the culture and the environment that it has built. It’s a very family-friendly opportunity and environment to come into, where I can use my talents and traits from the other aspects of my career. To now be in logistics, it’s my fourth week into this, we’re kind of feeling our way through that to enhance and solidify the relationships Allen has already been going after and trying to find and identify what is new for Allen Lund.”
With such experienced and passionate team members, Allen Lund has set itself up to be a significant and inspiring player in the produce game.
