Zespri stands out on the menu at Menus of Change
Last week Oppy joined event sponsor, Zespri, at the Culinary Institute Menus of Change Conference – a ground-breaking initiative from The Culinary Institute of America and Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health that examines key issues in order to change the menus of tomorrow.
Launched in 2012, the initiative aims to create a world-class network of collaboration among America’s most talented chefs, nutrition and environmental scientists, farm and fisheries experts, foodservice executives and policy makers by creating “plant forward” menus.
Zespri sponsored the event to introduce SunGold to this elite food service community and remind influential foodies of the outstanding eating experience of Zespri green. Attendees included representatives of food service operators, restaurant chains, non-profits, as well as celebrity chefs, food scientists, and notable leaders in the food industry. Encouraging plant proteins at the center of plates and healthy menus being the main topic of interest, Oppy and Zespri were honored to be part of this industry-changing event.
