United Fresh Focusing On Food Safety

The new Food Safety and Research Demo Center will join last year’s successful Traceability Demo Center (expanded this year to include logistics and other supply chain solutions) on the United Fresh 2010 show floor, April 20-23 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas.

As the produce industry’s only dedicated exhibit area focused exclusively on food safety solutions for all points in the fresh and fresh-cut produce supply chain, the Food Safety and Research Demo Center will help attendees answer pressing questions in this all-important industry field. 

“Given the importance of food safety within the fresh produce industry, the Food Safety and Research Demo Center became a must at this year’s show,” said Dr. David Gombas, United Fresh senior vice president of food safety and technology. “Visitors to the center will be able to learn about advances in best practices, audit harmonization, pending legislation and more, all in one stop."

The vision for the Food Safety and Research Demo Center would not have been possible had it not been for the level of success enjoyed by its traceability counterpart at last year’s United Fresh show. The demo centers are a key part of United Fresh 2010’s theme of ‘Winning is Everything.’ United Fresh 2010 looks to highlight the skills, products and technologies needed to build and maintain a successful, winning produce business, focusing on specialized programming for all segments of the fresh and fresh-cut produce industry.

New features at United Fresh 2010 include a Food Safety & Research Pavilion showcasing food safety solutions for growers and retailers and the Global Conference on Produce Sustainability, hosted immediately following United Fresh 2010 by United’s new Center for Global Produce Sustainability.
