IFPA Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement

The International Fresh Produce Association seeks to create a vibrant future for all—our member companies, our staff, and our consumers.

We believe the future will be more vibrant when:

  • Diverse talent is welcomed, included, and have equitable access to the professional resources and opportunities they need to thrive in their workplaces throughout their careers.
  • Every member company is welcomed, included, and has equitable access to the information, resources, and business relationships they need to prosper.
  • People everywhere have equitable access to the information and opportunities they need to consume more fresh fruits and vegetables and enjoy floral.

For these reasons, IFPA is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and to action:

  • Continuously educating ourselves about diversity, equity and inclusion and the role a trade association can play in advancing it within our organization, among our membership and industry.
  • Encouraging and supporting IFPA members to adopt DEI practices in their companies.
  • Attracting diverse talent on behalf of our industry.
  • Building an inclusive membership through supplier diversity initiatives.
