Shownotes

The London Produce Show and Conference (LPS) is back! It is organised and hosted by the creators of the award-winning New York Produce Show and Conference (NYPS).

As the largest produce event in the United Kingdom, it gathers high volume buyers and sellers from across the UK and around the world for unparalleled education and exceptional opportunities to network and build relationships. LPS22 provides a highly focussed environment for business development, sourcing opportunities and a unified forum for working together to boost produce consumption and to build a better industry.

The model has proved extremely popular and the NYPS and LPS are now well-established international trade exhibitions and conferences for the fresh produce industry, set in the heart of two iconic cities. As such, the LPS has taken the NYPS model and adapted it for the evolving demands of the UK marketplace.

It is the only annual produce show in town, and it has been successful in attracting exhibitors and attendees from more than 50 countries to the English capital city in its first three years.

We go live with Jim Prevor to find out more on The London Produce Show 2022 and why it is must attend event.

Jim is widely recognized as a leader in assessing the state of the perishable-food industries and analysing the prospects for the retail and foodservice venues in which perishable foods are bought and sold. His comments and insights on a broad range of subjects — including food safety, genetically modified organisms, irradiation, consumer dynamics, the state of food prices, sustainability and the competitive dynamics in the fresh-food retailing industry — have been seen and heard on CNN, the Fox Business Channel, the BBC, NPR, many network affiliates and over 100 newspapers, magazines and associated websites, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, USA Today, The Times of London, The Chicago Tribune and The Los Angeles Times.

He has also spearheaded the establishment of a network of live marketing events, including The New York Produce Show and Conference, The London Produce Show and Conference and The Amsterdam Produce Show and Conference, as well as conferences including the Global Trade Symposium and the “Ideation Fresh” Foodservice Forum. He has also been in the forefront of student programs, leading efforts such as The University Interchange Program and The Fresh Careers Fair.

As the fourth generation of his family to be active in the food business in the United States, he has served as a director of his family’s company, which was an importer, exporter and wholesaler of foodstuffs, including produce, deli meats and cheeses, fresh eggs and frozen poultry. At various times, the business also owned supermarkets and convenience stores, a restaurant chain and various farming operations.

The Evening Standard called Mr. Prevor, “…one of America’s most revered commentators on the food industry,” and The Sunday Telegraph called him “One of America’s most influential commentators on the grocery market,” while The Times of London has identified Mr. Prevor as “…one of the most influential commentators on the supermarket sector…,” and The Minneapolis-St. Paul StarTribune named Mr. Prevor “a well-respected authority on food safety.”
