For some time, Pete’s seminars were marketed by the old United Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Association and he did a kind of road show as Pete traveled the country trying to spread the gospel of a more professional industry. Those gathering in Las Vegas for the United Fresh Convention ought to raise a glass in his honor.
