For the second year in a row, Western Growers will serve as the Ag Technology Sponsor for the Organic Grower Summit (OGS). As the tech sponsor, WG will be hosting “Tech Alley” where budding entrepreneurs will line the exhibit hall and demonstrate their cutting-edge technologies that will significantly help farmers reduce issues faced on the farm.
“Following the success of our involvement in last year’s OGS, Western Growers is excited to again participate as the Ag Technology sponsor of this event bringing together various facets of organic growing and production. Our involvement in this visionary event reaffirms our commitment to driving innovation across all segments of the fresh produce industry,” said Matt McInerney, senior executive vice president for Western Growers, in a press release.
The Organic Grower Summit, which was launched last year, brings together organic growers, producers and processors for two days of education, information and networking opportunities with the organic production supply chain and service providers. The event also includes a series of educational sessions, keynote presentations, variety of meal functions and a trade show floor.
