Geoffrey Ratto, Ratto Bros. Organic Sales and Marketing Manager, was one of four exclusive recipients selected by the Frieda Rapaport Caplan Family for their 2017 Family Business Scholarship Program. This prestigious scholarship is awarded based on competitive applications submitted reflecting the program goal "to increase family business involvement in produce industry advocacy." The selected scholarship winners joined produce leaders at a Washington conference to "learn from and engage with Congressional leaders, Administration officials and industry colleagues." This annual gathering draws together critical partners in the produce industry to collaborate with policymakers in the Nation's capital. The activities include strategic discussions as well as interactions and conversations with members of Congress and their staffs. Congratulations to all four recipients: Geoffrey Ratto, Brian Loffredo of Loffredo Fresh Produce, Nick Wishnatzki of Wish Farms, and Mikee Suarez of MAS MELONS & GRAPES. A sincere thank you to the Caplan Family for this opportunity for one of Ratto Bros. outstanding next generation employees.
