Delivering More Flavorful Produce Workshop a Success at UC Davis
The first Delivering More Flavorful Produce Workshop really hit home with attendees. The 2-day February workshop, led by Beth Mitcham of UC Davis and Jeff Brecht of the University of Florida was sponsored by a grant to UC Davis and the University of Florida from the USDA Specialty Crops Research Initiative and covered a variety of in-depth topics on how to increase flavor quality of produce.
With a mix of breeders, growers, shippers, marketers, retailers and researchers, the course succeeded in stimulating participant interest and encouraging relevant discussions. The workshop also had a diversity of instructors. “[I liked] the range of sources of information, i.e. academic research to industry and distributors” , one participant reported. Other participants appreciated the recent research results and strong discussions.
The Workshop will be repeated in Florida May 4-5, 2011 at the University of Florida in Gainesville. A limited number of spaces remain available at the Florida location.
