Allison Moore, Fresh Produce Assn. of the Americas, says the Association, founded in 1944, has grown to become one of the most influential agricultural groups in the United States. She says FPAA provides a powerful voice for improvement and sustainability, serving the needs of more than 100 North American companies involved in the growth, harvest, marketing, import, and distribution of Mexican produce. She says the group recently saved importers nearly $1 billion by leading an effort that eliminated high duties on Mexican tomatoes.
