The INC Chairman, Michael Waring, has invited all of us who hold the dried fruit and nut world dear to participate in the International Nut and Dried Fruit Council’s INC Webinar Series in early June 2020. Led by a panel of experts, these working groups will provide insightful debates and discussions on each product and the state of the industry. TradeScope’s Ted Horton visited the Seville event in May 2017 and found it quite remarkable, with an impressive complement of all the best people in dried fruit and nuts. You can read about his findings here.
The INC 2020 webinars last between 45 minutes and an hour. You can get all the info you need and register online here: https://www.nutfruit.org/industry/news/detail/inc-webinar-series
