Citing the recent House approval in Congress of the Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009, United Fresh is pursuing industry activism with high hopes in its recent news. “More than ever before, it s… important that members of the produce industry actively engage with lawmakers on legislation that would both maximize public health and rebuild consumer confidence in our food safety system,” says United Fresh president and CEO Tom Stenzel.

Stenzel suggests this September’s Washington Public Policy Conference, where 350 industry leaders will meet with policy makers, as an opportunity for “groundbreaking legislation” around issues like child nutrition and food safety.
