Shuman Farms Preps for Upcoming Southern Innovations; John Shuman Tells All
REIDSVILLE, GA - As the excitement for Southeast Produce Council’s (SEPC) Southern Innovations show continues to climb, what better way to start your morning than with an exclusive show update? We recently got in touch with Shuman Farms to find out what the grower will have on display at this industry extravaganza.
“We are looking forward to attending SEPC’s Southern Innovations event once again. It’s a fantastic platform for us to showcase our products, programs, and commitment to delivering top-quality sweet onions to consumers,” shares John Shuman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We’ve been a proud member of the SEPC community for years, and Southern Innovations is a key event for us to connect with industry leaders and foster valuable relationships.”
Shuman Farms will be using this opportunity to talk with its retail partners about the company’s Peruvian sweet onion program, bringing attention to its creative tailgating and football promotions that will continue through the fall. The supplier will also be highlighting its premium RealSweet® and Mr. Buck’s Farm Fresh® brands of sweet onions.
“Our team is eager to engage with attendees and discuss how we’re working to meet the evolving needs of consumers who demand fresher and more sustainably grown produce,” John continues. “Sustainability is at our core of our operations, and we’ll have our team on hand to discuss our ongoing efforts to reduce our environmental footprint and support local communities.”
Innovation is another one of Shuman Farms’ core organizational pillars that will be taking the spotlight at the show.
“We’ll be talking about our ongoing consumer research and development efforts aimed at meeting shoppers’ needs,” John adds. “We’ll also be discussing how we’ve adapted to changing market dynamics and consumer preferences over the years, staying at the forefront of the industry.”
Giving back is another integral pillar for Shuman Farms, which is why the company will be volunteering at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina in Charlotte ahead of the show on Wednesday.
For Shuman Farms, this trade show is an industry experience packed with vital growth opportunities.
“We’re looking forward to the educational sessions the Council has put together this year. Southern Innovations is always an excellent opportunity to learn from industry experts and gain insights into emerging trends in the produce industry, and we’re excited to be part of these conversations,” John notes. “Shuman Farms is dedicated to delivering the freshest, highest-quality sweet onions to consumers, and we’re looking forward to discussing how we can partner with others who share our passion for excellence in the industry.”
