Mastronardi Produce is a fourth-generation, family-owned produce company and the first to bring commercial greenhouse growing to North America.
The first in a series of educational sessions at Organic Grower Summit (OGS) presented by Western Growers and OPN, "Organic Grower Perspectives on the Challenges of Scaling" will focus on the issues growers face in expanding their businesses to meet the increased demand for organic fresh produce. This session will explore how organic growing operations can navigate the changing marketplace to better fill the supply chain and offer products on a mass scale. OGS will be held in person on December 1-2 in Monterey, CA.
