My Meetings

The United Fresh Produce Executive Development Program - developed in partnership with the Cornell University Food Industry Management Program - is quickly building a reputation as the premier forum for produce industry executives to sharpen their management and leadership skills. Unlike other seminars and conferences, the Produce Executive Development Program (PEDP) was developed as an intensive "educational journey" for executives interested in maximizing their strategic planning, leadership and execution skills.

At the Produce Executive Development Program, participants experience best-in-class education on the campus of the Ivy League's Cornell University - a unique learning experience characterized by cutting-edge theory, industry best practices and discussion about important, real-world issues affecting the produce industry.
