In 1999, our six founding members met at the Atlanta Farmer’s Market and discovered a shared vision for establishing a nonprofit Southeastern-based produce organization. From the first formal meeting of the Southeast Produce Council (SEPC) where 100 agriculture, retail, and foodservice professionals gathered, we’ve grown into a vibrant and innovative organization of over 2,500 industry professionals. Today, we continue to grow at a steady pace thanks to a broad range of backgrounds and expertise from people like you.
