Aggies for Fresh is a campaign 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 conjunction with the 2016 Viva Fresh Expo, Aggies for Fresh brought six students to the event with two securing job opportunities following the event for graduating seniors. This year, Aggies for Fresh will be bringing ten students to the event in hopes of replicating the same success.
On Friday, April 21, Aggies for Fresh will be hosting a reception for industry leaders to come and hear more about the program as well as meet the students attending the expo. The reception will be held from 4:00 – 5:00 pm at the Hilton Hotel.
