Fifteen enthusiastic, future industry leaders from Canada’s produce industry have been selected as participants in the Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) 2019 ‘Passion for Produce’ (PFP) program, taking place at the annual convention and trade show, April 2-4, 2019 in Montreal.
“The Passion for Produce program is an excellent career building block for young emerging leaders in the fresh produce business. We’re proud to be celebrating the 10th year in Montreal,” said Ron Lemaire, president of the CPMA. “As the program continues to grow, so do the participants’ careers, and it’s very inspiring to see their progress and success as their passion takes them to new levels in our industry.”
CPMA members can nominate rising stars to take part in this opportunity to accelerate their professional development through a unique mentoring experience at the annual CPMA Convention and Trade Show.
Over the three days of the show, PFP participants connect with industry leaders and mentors, and participate in off-site tours, interactive sessions, networking events and more, to learn all they can about the fresh produce industry in Canada. PFP participants gain knowledge through first-hand experiences, discussions and networking that empowers them to return to work with an enriched understanding and renewed enthusiasm for the produce industry.
