If you can’t make it but would like to find out more about Stronger Together US and receive our program communications please register on our website here.



American produce relies on hundreds of thousands of skilled workers to plant the fields, tend the crops, harvest the produce and pack it for markets both here and abroad. Given current labor shortages, their responsible recruitment is critical to achieving commercial goals and delivering an exceptional work seeker experience.

The event aims to build consensus around the definition of responsible recruitment and on the most promising and proven approaches that should be promoted, encouraged, and invested in over the next several years. A summary of the lessons and recommendations from the discussion will be published.
