The United Fresh Produce Association is now accepting nominations for the 2014 United Fresh Retail Produce Manager Awards Program. The program will honor 25 outstanding retail produce managers at the United Fresh 2014 convention, scheduled for June 10-13 in Chicago, Ill.
Since the program's inception, 200 produce managers from 70 different retail banners have been honored for their commitment to customer satisfaction, innovative merchandising, produce-related community outreach, and recognition among company peers. Nominations are now being accepted for the 2014 program; nomination forms may be accessed online and must be received by February 28, 2014.
"This program is an incredible opportunity for retailers everywhere to put forth their top produce managers as a chance for them to be recognized as leaders in their field," said Randy Scott, chairman of United's retail-foodservice board and category manager of produce for Delhaize America. "For the winning produce managers, this is more than an award. This is an affirmation of their hard work and a thank you for their tremendous commitment to our industry."
This year, 25 award winners, along with their corporate produce directors, will receive complimentary airfare, hotel accommodations and registrations to the United Fresh 2014 convention. The winners will be honored at the Produce Celebration Gala on Wednesday, June 11, where five grand-prize winners will be announced as recipients of an additional $1,000 cash prize.
