“This year’s event focuses on the component of flavour in produce and the effect that the globally interconnected industry has on our evolving tastes,” said Mario Masellis, chair of the 2020 CPMA Convention & Trade Show Organizing Committee. “We expect the entertainment and production at the convention and trade show to ‘wow’ attendees in the same way that spectacular flavours do.”

“The 95th annual CPMA Convention & Trade Show will offer numerous networking and educational opportunities to help businesses flourish,” said CPMA President Ron Lemaire. “As the premier event in Canada for the fresh fruit and vegetable industry, it is extremely valuable for companies in our sector to make connections at this event. CPMA is also excited to showcase the industry-leading projects we’ve been working on over the past year including sustainability, through the Plastics Packaging Roadmap, waste reduction, through our Waste Efficiency Tool, Food Safety, through the Canadian Food Safety Fund, and much more.”
