The C.H. Robinson (CHR) Worldwide Foundation, the nonprofit foundation arm of produce and logistics industry leader C.H. Robinson Worldwide, has stepped up to support the Produce Marketing Association Foundation for Industry Talent (PMA FIT), a nonprofit organization dedicated to developing future talent for the produce industry.

CHR Worldwide Foundation’s donation to PMA FIT will go toward programs designed to broaden awareness regarding the rewards and opportunities of careers in produce, including internships, job shadowing, career ambassadors, a job bank, a career resource center, leadership development, an HR resource center, and event and leadership scholarships.
