WAPATO, Wash. – Nov 3, 2022 – Pace International LLC, a leading provider of sustainable postharvest solutions and technologies for the fresh produce industry, welcomed hundreds of attendees into its booth at the International Fresh Produce Association (IFPA) Global Produce and Floral show in Orlando, Florida.

“The energy was radiating throughout the show floor, as the produce industry reunited in-person after a two-year hiatus,” said Marcelo Masoero, Senior Global Sales Director at Pace International. “Our goal for the IFPA show was to showcase the postharvest advancements that Pace has created for the fresh produce industry, along with the many ways we are striving to eliminate food waste.”

Pace highlighted its dedication to service, technology, and sustainability in the Fruits from Chile Pavilion, where the Pace team had an opportunity to connect with global partners from across the fresh produce industry. The booth provided an exclusive touchscreen experience, enabling attendees to select a crop of their choosing and walk through a demonstration of the products and services available at each step of the postharvest process.
