Are you looking for new employees… either interns or full-time new hires? In just ONE DAY the future of our supply chain will be ready to talk to you about who they are and how they can make a difference within your company.

We are excited to bring more than 40 students from four Texas Universities to Viva Fresh. These students are from a variety of college programs with some ready to graduate in May, and others midway through their college degrees. The degrees paths include agriculture, accounting, finance, and more.

Each student has expressed an interest in learning more about the fresh produce industry and how they can fit in current and emerging sectors. In preparation of the event, many attending students have shared their resumes and bios which are posted on the EDGE website.


The students will be on the show floor from 9:00am-2:30 pm on Saturday, April 13th ready to interact with you and your employers. Please ensure to extend them a warm welcome and do not hesitate to chat with them about current or future jobs and internships within your companies.


The EDGE Breakfast is taking place from 7:30am-8:30am on Saturday, April 13th at the Scot Cotton Room-L2.

Note: You may only attend if you received confirmation from the EDGE coordinator that you were added to the final list.
