BRENTWOOD, MO - Retail dietitians and foodservice leaders have the opportunity to shape the future of fresh produce and Produce for Better Health Foundation (PBH) wants to help them pave the way.

Wendy Reinhardt Kapsak, MS, RDN, President and Chief Executive Officer, Produce for Better Health Foundation“PBH is thrilled to be back in person supporting one of the industry’s largest trade shows, as well as connecting produce companies directly with consumers through the various points of influence—including at the point-of-sale (retail) and at the point-of-flavor (culinary and foodservice),” said Wendy Reinhardt Kapsak, MS, RDN, PBH President and Chief Executive Officer. “The goal of this signature PBH event is to provide retail and foodservice leaders with actionable education and intimate networking experiences that inspire them to get creative with fruits and vegetables and take back ideas and solutions that help drive produce consumption and purchases in their stores, in e-commerce, and in dining establishments nationwide.”

The PBH Retail and Foodservice Immersion Event, a press release explained, will offer an array of educational and experiential programs throughout the four days that IFPA’s event is due to take place (October 26–29).
