Shaping Government Policies That Impact Your Business

United Fresh presents a new four-part webinar series featuring the most up-to-the-minute information about policy and regulatory issues that will dramatically impact your business. Be a part of these webinars, with Washington’s top policy experts sharing important trends, observations and insights into critical federal topics such as the 2012 Farm Bill, immigration, food safety regulations, nutrition and schools’ access to fresh fruits and vegetables.

Today, federal policymakers are having a dramatic impact on your business. Join us to hear from experts on the produce industry’s most critical issues:

  • 2012 Farm Bill

  • Immigration

  • Federal Nutrition Programs

  • The Produce Message to Congress

    Each of the four webinars will last approximately one hour – participate in the entire series or just the ones of interest to you. Participants can log-in live to hear from industry and government experts and ask questions that address their specific business priorities. All sessions will be recorded and accessible to all registered participants. The series begins on Thursday, June 14, 2012 and will take place once a month for four months.
