On Thursday, June 27, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time (11 a.m. PDT), the U.S. Department of Agriculture will present a free interactive webinar, “How to Sell Fruits and Vegetables to the USDA.”   Each year, USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) buys more than $530 million and 1.1 billion pounds of frozen, processed, and fresh fruits and vegetables.  These products help feed millions of school children and are also distributed to food banks, disaster areas, and elsewhere as needed.

You can visit the Commodity Procurement website, to see what products AMS buys. Then tune in to this webinar to learn everything you need to get started selling your products to USDA.

This webinar is designed for fruit and vegetable growers, processors and distributors of all sizes.  The webinar is free and available to anyone with Internet access.   However, registration is required and space is limited.  Visit here to register today.

If you have any questions about AMS or our webinars, contact Christopher Purdy at (202) 720-3209 or
