We Congratulate the Women’s Leadership Committee for the Eastern Produce Council


Theresa Lowden Receives First Annual EPC Woman Of Distinction Award

Each year at The New York Produce Show and Conference, they begin something new. This year the Eastern Produce Council established a Women’s Leadership Committee and in conjunction with that we have established a Women’s Leadership Reception, which took place adjacent to the trade show on Wednesday, December 11, 2013, at 3:30 PM.

In conjunction with the reception, PRODUCE BUSINESS magazine will commence an annual tradition of presenting an award to a woman who has exemplified the qualities of leadership that can both inspire other women and lead to a more successful industry.

For this, our inaugural award, there was little question that the award should go to Theresa Lowden, Executive Vice President at JOH.

Specifically, the award is being presented for Theresa’s efforts to launch the Women’s Leadership Committee for the Eastern Produce Council. More generally, the award is being presented for almost two decades of tireless work, including a not-insignificant amount of work helping us launch The New York Produce Show and Conference.

Paul Kneeland, President of the Eastern Produce Council, will say a few words. This Pundit, acting on behalf of PRODUCE BUSINESS, will present the award, and Theresa will have an opportunity to tell us about her journey as a woman in the produce industry.

We extend heartfelt congratulations to Theresa.

The New York Produce Show and Conference is an unusual event in that it serves buyers from all sectors of trade — retail to be sure, but also massive wholesale buyers, substantial exporters, processors, overseas importers and, of course, foodservice operators and distributors.

New York is the very center of culinary trends in America, and so it is only appropriate that they also created special event, the “IDEATION FRESH” Foodservice Forum to co-locate with The New York Produce Show and Conference.

This event, now in its third year, keeps growing because it’s a serious effort to address the issues that block foodservice from using produce to meet USDA goals of a half-plate of produce. It also looks to remove barriers that prevent produce from playing the role it could in reducing obesity.

  1. I do believe all the concepts you have presented to your post.
    They’re very convincing and can certainly work.

    Still, the posts are too quick for beginners. Could you please
    lengthen them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
