The Packer — sister publication of Produce Retailer — recently hosted a webinar about trends in the fresh produce industry, with three retailers discussing what they're seeing related to these trends in their stores.

The webinar features conversations with Scott Bennett, produce sales and merchandising manager for Jewel-Osco; Rob Ybarra, director of produce and floral for Coborn's; and Kevin Byers, produce merchandiser for PCC Community Markets. 

These buyers discuss organic, bulk produce versus packaged, consumer demand for sustainable and socially responsible products, social media, e-commerce and which fruits and vegetables are seeing growth in their stores.

You can download and play the PowerPoint — just hit that "slideshow" button and it will play through with audio and video — from this page on The Packer.
