SEPC Rolls Out The Recipe Roadshow


The Southeast Produce Council is hitting the road with its reinvented RECIPE (Regional Education of Culinary Information for Produce Executives) Roadshow in June to provide foodservice members with an educational opportunity to gain insight into current and upcoming trends and best practices.

Education is one of the four pillars of the Southeast Produce Council, which strives to provide quality educational programs to its members throughout the year; this innovative program has a packed agenda for foodservice members, including chef demos from member companies’ top chefs and produce presentations from industry experts, all at the Atlanta State Farmers Market in Forest Park, GA June 13.

“We are very excited to get back on the road again with our RECIPE Roadshow and provide a regional, education-centered seminar for the foodservice sector and the end users. We see a huge need to help prepare our members and their customers on proper handling techniques and product trends that affect their business,” says SEPC President and CEO David Sherrod.
