Rethinking Produce Supply Chains


Wednesday, May 6 from 6-7 pm EST


From the farm gate to the consumer’s plate, FoodBytes! is bringing together produce leaders from our network to explore how supply chains are being transformed near term in the face of massive demand shifts, as well as forward-thinking changes to strengthen them in the future.

Join us for the FoodBytes! webinar “Rethinking Produce Supply Chains” on Wednesday, May 6 from 6-7 pm EST.

Hear from:

The Farmer: Fifth-generation potato farmer Ryan Cranney of Cranney Farms on their sudden waste and distribution challenges and how they donated millions of pounds of potatoes directly to consumers when foodservice channels dried up. (Video: Watch Ryan Cranney on “LIVE with Kelly and Ryan”)

The Waste-Focused Startup: Tracy Hardin, director of merchandising at Imperfect Foods (FoodBytes! alum), on how the startup has fortified its supply chains to meet the exorbitant increase in demand for its ugly produce (and CPG) delivery.

The Produce Industry Leader: Ilanit Kabessa, global head of venturing at Dole, the largest fresh produce and packaged fruit company, on rethinking the value of waste and supply chain trends, including digitization and the consumer shift towards local production.

The Macro-Sector Analyst: Roland Fumasi, senior produce analyst at Rabobank, on the sector outlook both short and long term.
