"It's a Jungle Out There! Blazing New Trails for Agriculture"™
They’re lurking in the jungle… regulations, traceability, labor concerns, worker and food safety, competitive markets and more! It’s time we blaze a new trail because the pace, the people, the process and the products for agriculture have all changed. Have we? During this fun-filled, eye-opening presentation, we’ll discover today's top influencers on our customers. We'll learn the value of what we do is in the eye of the purchaser, not the producer. With lots of humor and real life stories, we’ll laugh while we learn the joys of blazing trails in agriculture’s “jungle!”
