Nonprofit organisation Fresh Produce Association of the Americas (FPAA) will use the upcoming Nogales Produce Convention and Golf Tournament to unveil the Mexican Produce Import Report ahead of the coming 2016/17 Mexican import season.
Along with a presentation about this important market data, attendees will get a comprehensive description of what their company may need to fully comply with the new Food Safety Modernization Act regulations.
The season officially starts with the celebration of the Nogales produce convention, this year taking place on 3-5 November at the Tubac Golf Resort and SPA.
As is traditional the convention is a celebration of a continually growing industry that includes educational sessions and various activities of recognition and leisure.
“We believe that a successful season not only depends on good market conditions, high demand and market access, but also good preparation, training and knowledge, therefore, we are excited to start the season with educational sessions in these two mayor topics: food safety and the Import Report,” said Lance Jungmeyer, president of the Fresh Produce Association of the Americas.
The 2015/16 Import Report will reveal trends in the import industry with statistics and comparisons from various seasons showing which items are gaining and losing ground in the market. A panel of growers will give their take on the coming 2016/17 season.
