University Interchange Program

Each year, the EASTERN PRODUCE COUNCIL and PRODUCE BUSINESS provide scholarships to deserving students in top agricultural universities and culinary schools from around the world. These scholarships provide a full immersive experience in the produce industry, complete with industry mentors and hands-on tasks that further their knowledge of the industry and open doors for a possible career choice or, at very least, a better understanding of how produce fits into the broader food business. Below is a list of universities and culinary schools that have participated in previous New York Produce Shows:
