The fresh fruits and vegetables industry is fast-paced and dynamic. There is little opportunity to take time out of a busy day for training and education. Recognizing the challenge of continuing education in our industry, CPMA develops, organizes and hosts webinars designed specifically for the fresh produce industry.

There are many diverse topics throughout the fresh fruit and vegetable supply chain, and CPMA's Education Committee works diligently to identify trends, topics and key issues and develop informative and dynamic webinars.

Consumer Insights on Plastics
Thursday, September 19th
1:30 PM – 2:30 PM (ET)

Abacus Data's CEO, David Coletto, will share results of a national consumer study he conducted for CPMA, exploring consumer preferences and attitudes towards single-use plastics and produce. The results reveal that consumers hold contradictory views – wanting to see plastic use reduced but becoming hesitant to change when their lifestyle and preferences are challenged. David will share the data and take questions from participants.

CPMA’s pollster, David Coletto from Abacus Data, will share his latest numbers and insights about what Canadians are thinking and what that means for the possible outcome.
