Stewardship Index Featured at United Fresh


The Stewardship Index for Specialty Crops (SISC) was a focal point of the United Fresh Global Produce Sustainability Conference on April 23rd in Las Vegas.

Hank Giclas, Western Growers Association, presented an overview and update on SISC. Joining him on a panel discussion about performance metrics were Hal Hamilton of Sustainable Food Lab and John Keeling of the National Potato Council. Jeff Dlott of SureHarvest gave the opening keynote presentation.

Hanks's slide presentation is available to download.

A tabletop display was managed by Andrew Arnold, SureHarvest, that resulted in several new pilot test participants.

Tom Karst of The Packer covered the event with a provocative commentary and coverage of the panel presentation.
