FPFC holds first 2021 luncheon meeting
For the first time in 18 months, the Fresh Produce & Floral Council held one of its signature membership luncheon meetings when more than 200 guests convened at the Anaheim Hills Golf Course dining room Aug. 18 in Anaheim, CA. COVID-19 put a halt to these in-person meetings throughout most of 2020 and 2021. Kevin Coupe of The Morning Beat was the keynote speaker as he talked about the changing dynamic facing retailers. Ryan Sanchez of Albertsons was the emcee while longtime Sysco executive Rich Dachman, who is now CEO of Brighter Bites, gave a pitch for the non-profit that delivers fresh produce directly into the hands of underserved families.
