Two Brookshire’s produce managers have been selected as national winners in the 2011 Retail Produce Managers Awards Program.
Brad Lange, produce manager at the Line Avenue store in Shreveport, La., and an 11-year employee, and Jake Foster, a 12-year employee and currently produce manager at the store in Athens, Texas, have won trips to the United Fresh Produce Association’s 2011 Convention and Expo, set for May 2-5 in New Orleans. The pair will be among 25 award winners, selected from some 250 entries from across the United States and Canada.
They will be recognized at the annual United Fresh Awards Banquet on Thursday, May 4, where five grand prize winners will be announced as recipients of $1,000 cash prizes.
“We are proud of Brad and Jake,” said Rick Rayford, president and CEO. “They have represented our company well and proven themselves to be the best produce leaders our industry has to offer.”
