This past weekend’s Fresh Produce Association of the America’s (FPAA) Convention brought many colleagues out of their busy offices to enjoy camaraderie among themselves and with visiting customers. The two-day event of educational seminars and golfing at the Tubac Golf Resort culminated in an evening gala event Friday.
An unexpected honor that evening for Ta-De was to receive the FPAA’s Annual Pillar of the Industry Award, given to FPAA member companies who have significantly contributed to the Mexican produce industry. Ta-De’s founding father, Carlos Bennen, was honored this year, and both Robert Bennen Sr. and Jr., their families and employees were there to celebrate the occasion.
We want to take this opportunity to thank the FPAA, our colleagues and friends, customers and the media who gave us your vote, and are looking forward to an exciting, successful and most collaborative 2015-16 season!
