Our sales team member, Michael Shapiro, just returned from the Fresh Produce Association of The Americas' 42nd annual convention, the second year that he has attended this event, renewing many of our business relationships.
Shapiro visited many of the offices and warehouses in Nogales from which we ship. A large amount of quality Mexican produce enters the U.S. in Nogales, and such items as round tomatoes, roma tomatoes, grape tomatoes, green and colored pepper, cucumbers, eggplant and squash are available. Kenny Olmos Jr. and Steve Arellano was generous host for Michael. Big Michael Dean of Mother Truckers helped guide Michael around during his visits to shipping offices.
