CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Two Coloradans were appointed today to the newly created USDA Fruit and Vegetable Industry Advisory Committee. CFB member and Mesa County FB President Bruce Talbot and CDA Markets Division Director Tom Lipetzky were both nominated to serve a two-year term ending in 2020.
“This is a strong group representing a cross section of the fruit and vegetable industry,” said Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue. “I look forward to having them as a resource for feedback and firsthand information to help us better understand the impact of USDA programs on farmers, ranchers, packagers, shippers and everyone involved in bringing quality food to American families and exporting American-grown products around the world.”
