By R. Brian How (auth.)

This booklet has advanced out of expertise received in the course of 15 years of training a path on fruit and vegetable advertising and marketing to Cornell college undergrad­ uates. in the beginning it was once tough to collect written fabric that might intro­ duce the scholars to the and supply examples to demonstrate industry­ ing ideas. except a number of significant stories just like the U. S. division of Agriculture's survey of wholesale markets that got here out in 1964 or the re­ port of the nationwide fee on meals advertising released in 1966 there has been little examine to show to within the early Seventies. exchange organization conferences, alternate papers, and private contacts with contributors of the have been the main resources of knowledge. It turned essential to gather infor­ mation from many alternative resources to fill the necessity for a descriptive base. Now there are lots of sturdy examine experiences and articles being released on a variety of stages of the undefined. There nonetheless continues to be a urgent desire, despite the fact that, to consolidate and interpret this data in order that it offers an less than­ status of the entire process and its numerous components. clean fruit and vegetable advertising and marketing is diverse in lots of respects from the selling of different agricultural and nonagricultural items. hundreds and hundreds of person commodities contain the entire workforce. each one product has its personal targeted specifications for growing to be and dealing with, with its personal caliber attributes, advertising equipment, and criteria of buyer acceptance.
