The FPFC Apprentice Program

In an effort to help prepare the industry leaders of tomorrow, the Fresh Produce & Floral Council has established the FPFC Apprentice Program, a free benefit for FPFC member companies.

The FPFC Apprentice Program  was designed to provide a complete overview of the supply chain, as well as professional skills and networking opportunities to professionals looking to increase their knowledge of the industry and develop the skills and understanding to take on leadership roles.  Each Apprentice is assigned an industry mentor to facilitate introductions at networking events and provide guidance and feedback during the program.

The FPFC Apprentice Program accepts applications at the beginning of the calendar year. The program runs May through December.

Congratulations to our 2020 Apprentice Class!
