Training

We know how difficult it is to keep up with best practices in produce handling, merchandising, promotion, and new product launches, let alone category and product specific knowledge. High labor turnover compounds the challenge.

To help you and your team stay current, we offer a broad range of training and educational programs, taught by experienced produce and floral professionals. Our Best Practices sessions include:

  • Maintaining organic produce integrity through the supply chain
  • Merchandising Hispanic and other ethnic produce specialties
  • Maximizing seasonal and holiday opportunities
  • Produce department basics
  • Floral department basics
  • Professional development

Contact us to customize a program for your produce and/or floral teams.
