Two weeks ago, Taylor Farms ventured to Orlando, FL to connect with industry partners and showcase our latest product innovations at the always-exciting Produce Marketing Association’s (PMA) Fresh Summit Convention & Expo. Team Taylor brought the “Flavor of Fresh” to the Sunshine State, highlighting our newest on-trend offerings that feature innovative flavor profiles, premium ingredients and clean labeling initiatives.
We featured our mouth-watering trio of “100% Free From” Chopped Salad kits – including our Avocado Ranch, Buffalo Ranch, and Maple Bourbon Bacon flavors – and our revolutionary Chicken Chopped Salad Kits, — Caesar, Cheddar Ranch, and Club. These premium salad kits are the first of their kind to be launched at retail stores and include ready-to-eat antibiotic-free grilled chicken, fresh veggies and savory dressing – delivering more than 30 grams of protein per bag!
During a special industry session, our own Bruce Taylor took the stage to interview former NFL all-star quarterback Peyton Manning in a session titled, Forum for the Future: Lessons in Leadership Both On and Off the Field. This dynamic interview related insightful lessons Manning has learned during his football career to business strategy, growth, and effective leadership. Manning emphasized 5 key takeaways during the session – embrace disruption to ensure growth, be resilient and learn to pivot, develop deep communication skills, master the art of teamwork, always be open to learning, and NEVER stopped being coached. When asked what has been one of his greatest takeaways from the game – Manning answered “people and relationships – when a team is truly connected it radiates power”.
