SANDUSKY, OH – Ohio Produce Growers and Marketers Association Congress

January 18, 2010

Ohio Produce Growers and Marketers Association Congress (OPGMA), January 18 – 20, 2010

Sandusky, Ohio, is the location of this year’s OPGMA Congress which will feature educational sessions to help aid Ohio growers of vegetables and fruits with topics relevant to mid-west food production, processing and marketing. The trade show will have exhibitions from a variety of OPGMA members including agricultural equipment suppliers, seed companies, fertilizer and chemical companies. Other trade exhibitions include agricultural insurers, marketers and food processors.

Within the past few years, OPGMA formed through the merger of several conventional agriculture trade organizations. According to their website, “In January 2007, the memberships of the Ohio Fruit Growers Society, Ohio Vegetable and Potato Growers Association, and Direct Agricultural Marketers Association merged to form Ohio Produce Growers & Marketers Association. The new organization was formed to streamline the educational and promotional activities of the state’s produce grower’s and marketers. OPGMA has been designed to aid in providing educational opportunities to business owners, employees, and families associated with the production and marketing of the state’s fresh produce industry. Promoting the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables will also be an important goal.”

For information about the organization and the event, visit OPGMA’s website, www.opgma.org.

Next week’s edition of The Erie Wire will include video and audio coverage of the congress.
