40 Under Forty: Emerging Leaders Making Connections

2024 40 Under Forty Winners Network to Push Produce

Congratulations to this year’s winners of the annual Produce Business 40 Under Forty awards! This year’s 40 Under Forty list spotlights the NextGen entrepreneurs and leaders who aren’t afraid of making the connections needed in the fresh produce industry.

Many of this year’s winners have made the industry stronger through connections — they seek the right people, are proactive, cultivate their network, offer assistance, attend industry events and build trust. Look out, world, this isn’t your grandfather’s produce business!

Each winner has the attitude, quality, potential, desire, determination and ambition to shape our industry even more over the coming decades. Individual candidates were contacted to discuss their key company, industry, community and personal accomplishments, sharing meaningful examples of their roles, as well as goals and aspirations. We are so proud of all the winners!

NOTE: If you were not chosen this year, or if you nominated someone who was not selected, please understand that the process is highly selective, and we encourage you to re-submit updated information in 2025. We welcome suggestions of well-deserving candidates throughout the year. Simply email us at editor@producebusiness.com. We look forward to honoring outstanding 40 Under Forty leaders again in 2025.

Congratulations to all the winners!
