Description

Hosted by Jim Prevor, aka the Perishable Pundit, we explore the "big issues" facing the fresh foods industry (including flowers) and how current events, retail/foodservice trends, technology and other major influences shape the future success of the industry -- "Where the subject may be perishable but the insight isn’t"

Once again, Jim Prevor steps outside his usual produce industry pinnings and discusses transformative topics that affect us all. In this episode, the Perishable Pundit uncovers “untold stories” about Chadwick Boseman’s close family ties, his support from his community and his own personal grit. In a world of the Black Lives Matter marches for policy changes and attitude shifts, the example of Chadwick Boseman stands to tell us a different story -- that success comes mostly from family and extended family and personal effort. If you really want to look below the surface, Chadwick’s life is filled with extremely important lessons.
Cornell University has justified reopening by establishing elaborate screening, quarantine policies and enforcing social distancing. Yet we are reminded that this age cohort has negligible risk of dying from COVID-19. Think of the student athlete who strives to be a pro and can’t live his or her dream because his or her school can't take responsibility for even the most minimal of risks. Even in the case of food safety, our society has zero tolerance for the most infinitesimal risk. In the end, society’s aversion to risk at all costs has its price.
A terrible sadness is the appropriate emotion as the nation wrestles with the public protests following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police. What we got, as a nation, was riots. The attacks on companies, such as Walmart retail stores in Chicago, show the likely consequences of the riots will be to hurt the protesters intended to help.
