Our 90th Annual Meeting held this past November was a productive, elegant and memorable event. Much work goes into preparing the meeting, and a great deal of the meeting’s success is owed to our sponsors. Over the course of the year, Western Growers likes to remind members about those companies who acted as sponsors and without whose generosity and support, the meeting would not have been possible.

California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) is proposing to make glyphosate, a common herbicide, a Prop. 65 listed material. This herbicide is a valuable part of the integrated pest management system and is used within a broad array of agricultural and urban settings. Western Growers (WG) has joined a large coalition expressing concerns with this proposal because the process and information OEHHA is using to incorporate glyphosate under Prop. 65 are seriously flawed.

Learn how to enhance the Cold Chain process using innovative technologies and products during Western Growers’ first-ever Tech Talk on February 9. Hosted at the Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology, the event will teach participants how to improve operational efficiency through live pulp temperature visibility and product traceability. The workshop will be led by Inteligistics, one of the ten start-up companies currently working out of the Center. The Tech Talk Series, which is offered at no cost, launches next week and continues monthly.
