As we typically do this time of year, we wanted to devote a full Pundit to some of the intriguing speakers who will be at The New York Produce Show and Conference and its co-located events beginning next week.

The program starts out on Tuesday, December 10, with the Foundational Excellence Program, which we do jointly with Cornell University.

Here is an article we used to explain the program.

You can see the Foundational Excellence website here.

On Wednesday, December 11th, the Global Trade Symposium will commence. You can see a brief video of reactions to the content here:

Thursday  we kick off the main trade show day at 7:00 AM at the New York Hilton with the Perishable Pundit’s Thought Leader Breakfast. We will be unveiling this year’s panel shortly, but here are the panelists from previous years:
