The Retail Produce Manager Awards pay special recognition to those on the front-line in supermarkets working everyday to increase sales and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. The award is given by the United Fresh Foundation Center for Leadership Excellence and sponsored by Ready Pac Foods. The program's 25 winners were selected from hundreds of nominations submitted by retailers and produce suppliers across the industry and were evaluated on a number of criteria.
All winners and their corporate produce directors will be honored at United Fresh 2013 during the Produce Celebration Dinner, Thursday, May 16, at the Marriott Marquis San Diego. In addition to the awards, five Grand Prize recipients will receive an additional $1,000 cash prize.

2 attorneys to speak
Michael M. Meloy and Bart E. Cassidy, partners with the environmental and energy law firm of Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox, LLP, will speak at the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry's Environmental Conference in Harrisburg April 17.
Cassidy's program, entitled, "Clean Air Compliance," will focus on recent developments in air quality regulations, which have been the subject of significant changes during the past year. He'll be joined by John Slade from All4, Inc. for a team-teaching approach to provide both legal and technical compliance strategies.
Meloy will participate in the "Residual and Hazardous Waste Compliance" program. Even though hazardous and residual waste regulations have been in effect for years, the requirements continue to be confusing. Meloy will be joined by Steve Socash, chief of the Division of Municipal and Residual Waste for the state Department of Environmental Protection, to help sort out the regulations, permitting requirements, proper disposal or recycling of waste, practical compliance strategies, and more.
At MGKF, Cassidy combines his legal, technical, and business skills to assist clients with a broad spectrum of environmental issues, including air and water quality control, waste management, storage tank issues, business and real estate transactions, and administrative litigation. He is a licensed professional engineer in addition to being a licensed attorney. His engineering education and experience have proven to be a valuable asset in providing environmental regulatory counseling to clients, particularly in the highly technical realm of air quality control, and in litigating environmental matters before federal and state courts and administrative tribunals.
