Event Highlights


Message from JPA regarding the COVID-19: JPA’s Board of Directors and Staff have been monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak. The safety of our members is top priority in all JPA's events. Given the current situation, it is in the best interests of all members to postpone the meeting at this time. As an international trade association, we exist to serve the juice products industry and host events to provide educational and networking opportunities. We understand the Annual Meeting is key to these goals. Toward this end, we are looking at the possibility of re-scheduling the meeting later this year. We will provide further updates, as available.


This year’s meeting is your opportunity to network with industry leaders and stay ahead of the curve with the latest industry information including an update on the economic contributions of the fruit and vegetable juice industry in the U.S., marketplace disruption and personal development, and government and technical affairs updates, as well as the Association's research and consumer outreach program.

Three days of dynamic sessions, networking receptions, informative committee meetings and opportunities will help you refresh and build your business contacts. It is the perfect place to meet with the juice products industry’s key decision makers and also provides an ideal opportunity to promote your brand within the industry through sponsorship opportunities.
