Industry energized by PMA Foodservice’s return to Monterey

MONTEREY, CA — The Produce Marketing Association held its first in-person event in nearly two years, and those in attendance at the PMA Foodservice Conference & Expo, held here July 21-22, were clearly happy to be reunited in this favored locale for two days of educational and networking events. Among the highlights was an opening reception at the Portola Plaza, which served to build the energy for the following day, when the expo floor opened and exhibitors had a chance to reconnect with their foodservice customers and friends. A closing reception at the Barns at Cooper Molera was the icing on the cake as the association looks forward to gathering in New Orleans in October for PMA Fresh Summit.
