As consumer awareness continues to move towards healthy eating and fresh produce, I feel like now is the ideal time to play a role in guiding people towards making educated choices and feeling passionate about what they eat. The Pear Bureau’s programs have been benefiting growers and consumers for over 85 years, and I feel honored to join such an established, respected organization,” said Ferguson.
