In this week’s episode of The Produce Industry Podcast with Patrick Kelly and Co-Host Ross Nelson we chat with Thomas Smith, Director of Sales for California Giant Berry Farms. We record this interview LIVE in Nashville, Tennessee while at South East Produce Councils Southern Innovations. Patrick and Thomas were trying to make this happen for almost 6 months, but with the help of Ross Nelson it came to fruition.
From the Salinas Valley in California to South West Florida we are going to learn all about where Cal Giant makes their play!!! Being a vendor of Indianapolis Fruit Company, Ross has some inside information on these berries and how he purchases them year round!!!
Join Ross, Patrick and Thomas chop it up in Nashville while having fun and learning together!
