Titan Farms Sponsors Women’s Symposium at Southern Exposure
RIDGE SPRING, S.C.- February 10, 2015 -Titan Farms, the premier
grower, packer and shipper of peaches and vegetables in the
Southeast, will be sponsoring the first ever Southern Roots
luncheon at this year's Southeast Produce Council Southern Exposure
in Orlando, Fla.
The luncheon will serve as the official launch of Southern
Roots, a program designed to make meaningful connections among
women working in the produce industry through events, education and
mentoring. All women who are attending Southern Exposure are
welcome to attend.
The opportunity to sponsor the Southern Roots luncheon was
offered to Titan Farms as they were looking to get more involved
with Southeast Produce Council and saw the sponsorship as a perfect
alignment with their vision for women in the industry.
"As a grower in a male-dominant industry, it is our duty to
support women both within our company and the industry," said
Chalmers Carr, president of Titan Farms. "It is an honor to sponsor
an organization that recognizes women leaders of today and helps
shape those of tomorrow."
From its inception, Titan Farms has been committed to supporting
women in produce, with several women in leadership positions within
the company. The company currently employs more than 90 women in
all aspects of its business-from administration to human resources
and accounting, to vice president Lori Anne Carr.
"Some of the women we employ at Titan Farms have been with us
since the beginning," said (Lori Anne) Carr. "We are committed to
their growth just as they are committed to the growth of our
Southern Roots is chaired by Southeast Produce Council board
member and Food Lion category manager Teri Miller. A strong
advocate for women in the industry, Miller is excited to play a
part in helping them achieve success.
"My hope is to arm women with the right tools as they navigate
the industry," said Miller, who has been in the industry for over
27 years. "Southern Roots was born out of a vision to make the
journey easier for women at any stage and we are thankful for
companies like Titan Farms who see the value of helping women
further their careers."
