With all the benefits of technology, there is something about sitting down face to face that can make it easier to think through industry problems and move toward improving the situation.
So at the upcoming edition of The New York Produce Show and Conference, we are going to steal a page from our IDEATION FRESH Foodservice Forum and do some ideation about this cantaloupe situation and its broader meaning for food safety and the industry.
We will borrow the Penthouse Suite from the Spouse Program as the trade show ends at 5:00 PM on Tuesday, November 8, 2011, and the Pundit will coordinate a casual and frank conversation on the issue, including a discussion of what really happened, why it happened and, most importantly, seek out ways for how we can do better.
There is no charge for this intimate exchange of ideas but, for security reasons, you need a show badge to get into the venue.
If you think you would like to be a part of this small group, please send us a note here so we can get an idea for the numbers.
