With three weeks to go and over 1,400 confirmed attendees, Organic Produce Summit 2022 will be the largest OPS ever held, providing industry leaders an unprecedented opportunity to gain educational insight and share information on the future of the organic fresh produce industry.
Summer has dawned, which means regional growers all over the country are starting to bring their crops to market. And while there is a noticeable shift on the conventional side of the ledger causing year-round commercial grower-shippers in the West to reduce their acreage, the impact is less noticeable in the organic sector. Short seasons and summer bug pressure limit the number of seasonal growers offering organic produce.
Jacobs Farm del Cabo will soon be expanding its sustainable packaging line and is looking forward to talking about its commitment to healthy soil development at OPS in July. Marketing Manager Dani Loustalot recently joined OPN for a chat about the organic grower-shipper’s produce offerings, its dedication to family farms, its future plans, and more.
