For the 4th consecutive year, PBH will host a four-day educational program for a select group of supermarket RDs during the upcoming Fresh Summit Convention and Exposition in Atlanta. The program will begin on October 22nd with a presentation on the science of flavor and how it contributes to the fruit and vegetables we like or dislike. A culinary demonstration will follow focused on different ways to enhance the flavor of fruit and vegetables. Throughout day two, the supermarket dietitians will participate in their choice of workshops, presented by PMA, and end the day with a networking reception and dinner. The dietitians, on the final two days of the program, will tour local supermarkets and walk the expo floor meeting with the sponsors of the PBH event as well as PBH board members.
PBH extends our sincerest appreciation to the sponsors of the PBH educational program and event:
