United Fresh plans re-Fresh Experience to help personal, business outlook

United Fresh Produce Association is launching the United re-Fresh Experience, a monthly series of events in January 2021 to re-Fresh your business, re-Fresh your company, and re-Fresh your life.

“Despite the trials and tribulations across our supply chain in 2020, we’re all ready to turn the corner into brighter days,” Tom Stenzel, President & CEO of United Fresh, said in a news release. “The new United re-Fresh Experience will help companies and teams explore what we’ve learned this year to build a stronger future, and what new and innovative opportunities lie ahead in 2021.”

Ten thought-provoking sessions spread across the month will bring together peers across the industry in a new and unique way. Experts will present concepts to forge success in both personal and business environments, followed immediately by break-out peer-to-peer discussions to share innovative strategies coming to life in 2021.

Among the session topics to be addressed:

  • Solutions for Personal Well-Being in Stressful Times
  • Combining Remote and in-Person Work Environments for Success
  • Enhancing Diversity and Equality Within Your Company and Our Industry
  • Creating Flexible Supply Chains to Withstand Future Challenges
  • Building Sustainability Into Your Operations
  • Assessing the Impact of the Presidential Election
  • Managing Food Safety Through Disruption and Crisis
  • Creating Impulse Buying in Online Produce Sales
  • Adopting Direct-to-Consumer Sales Opportunities
  • Rebuilding the Restaurant and Hospitality Sector

The 2021 United re-Fresh Experience Advisory Council will be co-chaired by Kristen Reid, Executive Vice President, MIXTEC Group, and Claudia Pizarro-Villalobos, Marketing and Communications, D’Arrigo California.

“The United re-Fresh Experience allows our industry to start the year with enthusiasm and an open-mind as we navigate new ways of operating,” said Reid. “Claudia and I look forward to working with our peers and the United Fresh team to bring the strongest possible experience to the industry.”
