The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) has announced the slate of speakers for the meat track of breakout sessions at the 2016 FPSA Annual Conference held in Bonita Springs, FL this March.

The meat track of sessions at the Annual Conference will kick off with a presentation from President and CEO of Butterball LLC Kerry Doughty who will share with attendees his unique perspective on today’s biggest challenges in production and how Butterball is addressing them.

Jim Perdue, chairman of Perdue Farms, will also speak at the event. During this session Perdue will field questions that have been prepared by suppliers in order to get a clearer understanding of Perdue Farm’s vision and priorities, as well as how suppliers can more effectively work with one of the nation’s leading poultry processors.

“We are honored to present speakers of this caliber to the FPSA audience,” says David Seckman, FPSA President and CEO. “Frankly, this is just one more example of why members come to the FPSA Annual Conference. When you pair these highly influential industry speakers with our dynamic general session speakers, and add the numerous networking opportunities with colleagues and potential customers you have an event that suppliers simply must attend.”
