Strong Peruvian asparagus contingent at Fresh Summit expectedThe Produce Marketing Association’s annual Fresh Summit convention will feature a strong contingent from the Peruvian asparagus industry.

Many members of the Peruvian Asparagus Importers Association will have booths at Fresh Summit, set for Oct. 17-19 in Anaheim, Calif., and more will be on the show floor, according to an association news release.

“Most if not all PAIA members will be attending PMA Fresh Summit, whether walking the show, exhibiting, participating in meetings or networking,” Priscilla Lleras, the association’s coordinator, said in the release. “We always have time to talk about Peruvian asparagus and the advances within our industry, and we look forward to the interchange we can have with our valued customers during this time.”

Value-added packaging will be among the new products Peruvian exporters and importers will display at Fresh Summit, Lleras said.
