“The United FreshTech Expo has long been the place for innovative companies to showcase the tools, technologies, equipment, goods and services needed to advance our industry,” said United Fresh President & CEO Tom Stenzel. “As part of FreshTech, we’ve also been able to honor a number of outstanding individuals for their food safety and technical leadership over the years. Now, we are bringing those traditions together to create an annual award to recognize those innovators who truly help advance our industry with new harvesting and packing technologies, processing equipment design, information systems and more.”

Nominations for the FreshTech Achievement Award are due by April 29 and can be submitted online. Produce companies are encouraged to nominate their outstanding service providers, and self-nominations are also welcome. The award will be presented at the United Fresh 2016 Expo, co-located with FMI Connect, the International Floriculture Expo, and the new Global Cold Chain Expo,

Registration and FreshTech Achievement Award nomination forms are available on the United Fresh 2016 Expo website.
