MONTEREY, CA - In just a few days, general registration opens for the highly anticipated Organic Produce Summit (OPS) 2023. With the seventh annual event approaching on July 12–13, OPS has announced the first ed session for the event, titled ​​CEA—Where Do We Grow from Here?

Susan Canales, President, Organic Produce Summit“CEA continues to alter the landscape of food production and provide consumers a variety of new items that will evolve in the years ahead,” said Susan Canales, President of Organic Produce Summit. “There continues to be significant financial investment from within and outside of the produce industry that fuels CEA growth. OPS attendees will hear from leaders of two of the most progressive organic CEA producers and a leading retailer who is front and center offering these products to their customers, exploring what is going right and needs to work for the future of CEA."

The conversation will explore the continued growth of the Controlled Environment Agriculture sector, discussing how producers, retailers, and consumers are responding to fresh produce items grown indoors.

With the seventh annual event approaching on July 12–13, OPS has announced the first ed session for the event, titled ​​CEA—Where Do We Grow from Here?

The session will be moderated by Todd Linsky, Host of Todd-versations. According to a press release, panelists will include Philip Karp, President of Soli Organic; Eric Cusimano, Global Produce Principal Buyer for Whole Foods Market; and Pierre Sleiman, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Go Green Agriculture.

Todd Linsky, Host, Todd-versations"The CEA space has successes and failures that ebb and flow daily—sometimes hourly. The mercurial nature of the shifts can be attributed to overzealous investors, lack of institutional knowledge of the produce business, and how companies are defining their value in the food supply chain,” Linsky added.

This conversation comes at a critical moment for our industry as production of fresh produce in CEA has become a $100 billion-plus industry in the past four years.
