Gourmet Trading Company, the largest distributor of fresh asparagus in North America, has announced that the company’s President and chief executive Brian Miller will be a featured speaker at this year’s International Asparagus Symposium.
The event takes place on Thursday 12 September in Lima, Peru.
Gourmet Trading Company has imported asparagus to the United States for over 20 years, and today is a prominent year-round grower, packer and shipper of fresh green, white and purple asparagus – making president Brian Miller the ideal candidate to discuss the value of year-round availability of asparagus to this year’s attendees.
"I am honoured and excited to speak at the upcoming symposium," he explained. "The growth of the fresh asparagus industry over the past two decades has been driven by a fascinating combination of year round supply and promotion at retail and foodservice. I look forward to sharing the insights Gourmet Trading has had over the past 20 years with the rest of the industry."
