Retail Produce Tour (Optional)*

Attend a guided tour of the Philadelphia Wholesale Produce Market on April 12. Opened in June 2011 as the world’s largest fully-enclosed, fully-refrigerated wholesale produce terminal, this facility houses 25 independent fresh produce wholesalers that sell to customers from Florida to Canada with most coming from within a 150 mile radius. This is a great opportunity to make new contacts and meet key retailers. The tour will take place at 7:00 am, departing the hotel at 6:45 am and returning for the start of the education program. The tour is complimentary, but separate registration is required, and space is limited. For more information, contact Astrid Schrier at +1 (302) 607-2102.
* Separate registration required.
