The Viva Fresh Expo is proud to support Aggies for Fresh, a program that seeks to inspire Texas A&M University students to pursue a purpose-driven career in fresh produce. Texas A&M University’s core values align closely with the fresh produce industry, creating a natural fit for talented Aggies of all backgrounds, skill sets, and ambitions. Founded in 2014, Aggies for Fresh has been successful with not only bringing more awareness, but placing students into internships and full-time employment in the industry upon graduation.
In both 2016 and 2017, Aggies for Fresh has brought over a dozen students to the expo to gain exposure to the produce industry, many of whom who received job offers. Aggies for Fresh will once again be bringing students to the 2018 expo in hopes of replicating the same success.
Stay tuned for updates on the students that will be attending the expo, as well as for details on the Aggies for Fresh reception which will be held on Friday, April 6.
