Every year, our team attends the Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit. This event brings together fresh produce and floral companies from around the world to showcase the latest and greatest. 

It’s one of our favorite times of the year and gives us a chance to meet face-to-face with friends and colleagues in the produce industry, make new connections and scope out what new items will be coming to a grocery store near you. 

As with most things in 2020, a trade show of 20,000+ people just wasn’t in the cards. But, thanks to technology, we were able to take the show virtual, giving us the same opportunity to showcase what’s new to you!

Here are some of our team’s favorite new items – some of these might already be in a store near you or will be soon! See something you love? Make sure to follow that brand on social media to stay up-to-date on when you can see that product in-stores!
